This paper addresses the way in which 'partnership' arrangements between government agencies and commercial operators are starting to shape the way in which regulators are seeking to manage various aspects of trade compliance and, as a result, to facilitate legitimate international trade. The paper draws on specific aspects of a recent research study that was commissioned by the Australian international trade and transport industry, which analyses global initiatives to secure international supply chains from terrorist and other threats while maintaining appropriate levels of trade facilitation. The paper examines the concept of public-private partnerships from an historical perspective, and identifies the changing nature of such partnership arrangements in response to new and emerging global challenges in the context of the international trading environment. In particular, it examines the way in which the focus of customs-related partnerships has shifted from trade compliance to supply chain security, and concludes that partnership programs represent an effective element of regulatory compliance management regimes, regardless of their focus.
