Australian Trusted Trader
FTA is a founding member of Australian Trusted Trader Industry Advisory Group (IAG) working collaboratively with key stakeholders across government and industry to co-design this important reform.
Businesses that demonstrate that they meet requirements relating to supply chain security and a history of trade compliance will be formally recognised as low-risk and accredited as Trusted Traders. Australian Trusted Trader will offer Trusted Traders benefits that reward better supply chain management and help businesses forge new global trade links and operate with greater certainty.
Consistent with international standards, the Australian Trusted Trader aligns with the World Customs Organization's Standards to Secure and Facilitate Global Trade (the SAFE Framework). This allows more efficient clearance of low-risk cargo and provides opportunities to tailor border clearance requirements to particular risks specific to a business, their goods and supply chain.
FTA and APSA keep members up to date via our "Frequently Asked Questions" page - available HERE.
Through our specialist consultants, FTA and APSA are ideally positioned to members in completing an Expression of Interest (EOI) and the detailed Self Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) required to apply for participation in the Australian Trusted Trader program - to find out more about this option, please contact Travis Brooks-Garrett at 0434105145.
"I can wholeheartedly recommend the FTA Australian Trusted Trader (ATT) consultancy and advisory service. BCR is a trialling member and early adopter of the ATT programme and the FTA consultancy service complimented, enhanced and directed our internal resources in a logical and effective manner.
In my opinion, businesses that have either submitted an Express of Interest (EOI) or are in the process of completing the Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) are doing themselves an injustice if they don't utilise the FTA's expertise.
I can assure all members that are considering this service that they will be well served by the level of knowledge, experience and expertise that Paul, Travis and the FTA team have available.
I would be happy to answer any questions from fellow FTA members."
