CTPAT Statement of Support

Maine Port Authority (MPA), has been a proud member of the Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (CTPAT) since 2012, certified by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

This certification recognizes our company's commitment to maintaining the highest level of security for the well-being of our customer and the United States. Supply chain security continues to be an integral part of our culture and business processes.

CTPAT remains a voluntary public-private sector partnership program where members work with CBP to strengthen their international supply chains and ultimately improve border security, protecting the supply chain from criminal activities such as drug trafficking, terrorism, human smuggling, and illegal contraband.

The MPA has developed, and maintains, a multi-layered security program that is consistent with the CTPAT minimum-security criteria and remains committed to protecting our organization and supply chain from any illegal or illicit activities.

By agreeing to participate in this program, the MPA will take steps to enhance and improve security. As a CTPAT participant the MPA must:

  • Maintain a detailed Security Plan

  • Develop a self-policing program to review security policies

  • Continue current security efforts and review yearly with a Facility Security Assessment

  • Maintain a high level of compliance and requirements

  • Encourage business partners to participate in CTPAT

Security is everyone's responsibility. all employees and business partners, including contractors, service providers, and visitors are expected to adhere to the CTPAT security policies and procedures that are in place at all our ports.

Companies wishing to verify our CTPAT certification can send an email to to request the SCPA's participation status.
