Partners in Protection (PIP), the supply chain security program of the Canada Border Services Agency, was initially established in 1995 as a program focused on Customs’ compliance. It has since transformed to actively deal with supply chain security as its main objective.
Obtaining a PIP Certification requires an organization to complete a security profile for their main operations as well as security profiles for all subsidiary and/or affiliates and supply chain business partners. The completed security profile must clearly demonstrate that all security requirements have been met. CBSA then works with the organization to conduct site visits, review the security profiles, and offer suggestions to correct areas that received high risk assessments.
Eligible Business Types:
PIP members must own or operate facilities in Canada. US-based highway carriers do not need Canadian facilities if they are members of FAST, the Canada-US/US-Mexico program for 'Free and Secure Trade'.
