C-TPAT stipulates that security sealing products on cargo destined for the US must conform to the new guidelines devised by ISO. Using a non-compliant product or the incorrect product could incur higher shipping costs and lengthy delays. The requirements for C-TPAT compliance are set out in document ISO/PAS17712:2006, published by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO).
What is ISO/PAS17712:2006?
ISO/PAS 17712 (Publicly Available Specification) is a draft International Standard that establishes "uniform procedures for the classification, acceptance, and withdrawal of acceptance of mechanical freight container seals".
ISO/PAS 17712 defines the various types of security seals available and describes in detail the general performance requirements for each level of product and includes details of testing specification.
In order to define whether a seal meets C-TPAT compliance, seals must be subject to ISO approved performance tests. In addition to complying with physical requirements, firms manufacturing or distributing the security seal must also comply with requirements of additional points set out in the Annex A section of the Standard.
