Supply Chain Security

Trade Security

Agilent supports the work done by the World Customs Organization (WCO) and the Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) to improve security of our supply chains and logistics systems. Agilent urges its suppliers to join their appropriate program. US suppliers are urged to join C-TPAT. In addition, US Customs expects non-US suppliers to implement appropriate security measures within their own supply chains.

  • Agilent expects its suppliers to have programs in place to secure trade along their supply chains. These program should be equivalent to C-TPAT US or AEO (World Customs Organization) programs.
