CBP CONTAINER DIVISION SCREENS FOR THREATS BEFORE THEY REACH THE US

On 6th July, in the first of 2 reports on maritime container security, Homeland Security Today interviewed Dan Stajcar, director of the Container Security Initiative Division at US Customs and Border Protection, to find out more about the programme and its impact at home and overseas.  CSI was announced in January 2002 and is part of CBP’s layered cargo enforcement strategy.  Before 9/11 there was no CSI and no programme that required inspection of high-risk containers before they left the ports of embarkation or trans-shipment.  Under CSI, CBP assesses the risk of every maritime containerised cargo shipment before it is loaded on a vessel destined for the US.
