  • (1888PressRelease) April 26, 2014 - The new requirements are related to the update of ISO 17712:2013 - The International Standard for mechanical security seals.

    The requirements will essentially change the definition of a High Security Seal, as per the standard.

    Failure to present the proper certificates will render your company non‐compliant with international requirements such as C‐TPAT, PIP, WCO and others.

    For companies shipping internationally, and especially companies that have gone through the process of obtaining C-TPAT Certification, it will be important to ensure that the security seals being used in their supply chain will be compliant with the new regulations.

    Below is a list of the documentation that you should obtain from your security seal supplier:

    1. Valid ISO 17712:2013, Clause 6 Tamper Compliance Letter, documenting that the High Security seal has been tamper tested:

    By the manufacturer, and validated by a qualified third party, or:
    By a third party testing facility.

    2. Valid ISO 17712:2010, Clause 5 or valid ISO 17712:2013, Clause 5 test certificate for the security seal, documenting that the seal is classified as an "H" - High Security Seal

    The test must be conducted by a third party test lab.

    3. The third party test lab must document valid ISO 17025 accreditation to conduct testing of mechanical security seals as per ISO 17712:2013.

    4. Valid ISO 17712:2013, Annex A certificate of the seal manufacturer (best practices certificate).

    5. Valid ISO 9001:2008 certificate of the Seal Manufacturer

    Mega Fortris entire range of high security seals is compliant with the new requirements, and we welcome an opportunity to provide guidance and compliant solutions to your company.
