C-TPAT Validations in China

Here's news: Customs and Border Protection has finally secured the ability to have its people do C-TPAT validation in China. Until now, CBP has planned to rely on private third parties to conduct the validations. Now, CBP personnel will do it. I'm not sure that there is much practical significance to this but it does alleviate the concern about business proprietary information being in private hands.

By the way, for Google purposes, C-TPAT is the Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism.
