The United States Ambassador in Santo Domingo, Hans Hertell, on behalf of the United States Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and the Department of Energy of the United States of America (DOE), have signed a declaration of principles with regard to CSI with the General Directorate of Customs of the Dominican Republic government, Miguel Cocco.

CSI is operational in 44 ports in Europe, Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and North, South and Central America. CSI is designed to identify and examine high-risk containers destined for the US. As part of the initiative, CBP officers are stationed at the terminal, working closely with local authorities and the terminal operator. Radiation detection equipment is also installed.

At Caucedo, CBP officers will work at the terminal on a pilot basis. DP World is currently investing in radiation detection equipment, which will replace the radiation detection equipment initially supplied by CBP.
