The General Accountability Office (GAO) has issued a report on Supply Chain Security. The GAO recommendations include that U.S. Customs & Border Protection (1) enforce the Container Status Message (CSM) requirement when targeters identify carriers’ noncompliance; (2) evaluate the effect of enforcement strategies on compliance at the port level; and (3) collect additional performance information to better evaluate the effectiveness of the ISF program. The Department of Homeland Security concurred with these recommendations. The full report is available at: https://www.gao.gov/products/GAO-17-650
