English term or phrase:to fall short of the mark
If you think that you’re doing your part by upgrading from a strip seal to a bolt seal, or for that matter to any other device that can be easily circumvented, you’ve fallen short of the mark!
As an importer, to fully comply with the intent of C-TPAT, you must do your part by effecting legitimate changes within your operations to defend against covert break-in. Otherwise, you are still leaving yourselves, and the rest of us, exposed and vulnerable to attack.
