C-TPAT High Security Seal Standards

C-TPAT High Security Seal Standards

Please be advised that effective March 1, 2012, the current International Organization for Standardization (ISO) mechanical seal standard (ISO/PAS 17712) will be replaced with a new ISO standard--ISO 17712:2010. C-TPAT understands that seals are costly, and companies are not expected to discard seals currently in stock. However, after companies have exhausted their current stock of high security seals, we recommend that they purchase seals which are compliant with the new ISO 17712:2010 standard.
