TAPA offers cost-effective security certificate

[ October 1, 2015   //   ]

The Transported Asset Protection Association (TAPA) has launched a new entry level for its certification programmes for transport and logistics companies looking to implement industry-leading security standards. Available to both members and non-members, the aim is to increase the number of TAPA-certified cargo warehouses and trucking operations in Europe, the Americas and Asia Pacific, in line with the Association’s stated three-year goal to double the number of TAPA-certified facilities to 2,000 worldwide and to make a quantum leap’in the number of companies complying with its Trucking Security Requirements.
To qualify for entry level self-certification, companies need to attend a 1-2 day TAPA Security Standards training course and pass the examination, conduct a self audit and submit the result to TAPA along with any supporting evidence, if required.
The process is free for TAPA members but non-members will pay a fee.
Thorsten Neumann, Chairman of TAPA’s Europe, Middle East & Africa (EMEA) region, said: “This initiative gives companies the ability to adopt our entry-level security standards in a highly efficient way. In the majority of cases, our FSR Level ‘C’ and TSR Level ‘ 3’ Standards already provide the degree of improved security required by manufacturers, although many of our members opt for the higher independently-audited certification levels for their major operations.”
