On September 16, 2022, in a press release, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced that it signed an Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) Mutual Recognition Arrangement (MRA) with the customs administration of Brazil. The MRA “builds on other agreements between CBP and the Government of Brazil and ensures coordination for each nation’s supply chain security as well as efforts in combating customs and trade offenses

According to the press release, “the essential concept of MR is that CTPAT [Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism] and the foreign Customs Administrations program have established a standard set of security requirements which allows one business partnership program to recognize the validation findings of the other program which benefits both Customs Administrations and the private sector participants.”
