Security Seal for Containers 2 - Yellow Bolt Seal

ISO 17712:2013 is the latest ISO standard, pertaining to security seals. For a security seal to be C-TPAT compliant it must meet or exceed the current ISO 17712 standards for a high security seal.

C-TPAT is a government program run by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection stating that “…a high security seal must be affixed to all loaded containers bound for the U.S. and all seals must meet or exceed the current ISO 17712 standards for high security seals.”

Purchasing security seals that are tested to the high security standard as classified by the most recent ISO 17712 gives you peace of mind that you are getting a high security seal, even if you are not sending cargo to the U.S.

It is not hard to find ISO 17712:2013 compliance claims on security seal styles that are not eligible for compliance. This makes it difficult to determine if any ISO 17712 claim is legitimate, unless you procure from a trusted supplier, that ensures the products not only has an ISO 17712:2013 certificate, but that the certificate is issued by an accredited ISO 17712:2013 testing laboratory. This is currently not difficult to confirm as only a very limited number of testing laboratories are accredited to perform ISO 17712:2013 testing.

Preventing unauthorised access to cargo requires having the right products in place. High Security Bolt Seals provides a physical barrier and deterrent to theft. Security seal serial numbering is also a crucial component of the seal’s security integrity. Harcor developed the Exact & Track system that successfully managers millions of serial numbers every year. The system securely stores serial number data, protects against serial number duplication and provides quick serial number tracking.

The new bolt security seal that has been added to the range is titled TAVSEAL-2. This bolt seal joins the One Seal and other industry leading logistic sealing solutions. The complete transport industry sealing range can be viewed by clicking here.
