TAPA FSR - Facility Security Requirements
The Transported Asset Protection Association (TAPA) developed the internationally accepted standards TAPA FSR (Facility Security Requirements) and TAPA TSR (Trucking Security Requirements) for companies in the transport and logistics sector to ensure the security of goods and cargos in the supply chain.
TAPA FSR contains requirements for safe and secure storage and warehousing of items of property.
How it works
TAPA FSR standard is needed in case of risk and/or when required by a customer or logistics service provider. Audits may be carried out at any location in the supply chain, and refer to the premises of the customer/logistics service provider that are owned by them or where their business activity takes place. During the audit, e. g. CCTV and security systems, the protection of goods and the security of warehousing areas and the organization's premises are evaluated. TAPA FSR distinguishes between three different levels of security (A, B and C) and ties these to appropriate security requirements. Level A represents the highest level of security. If your organization fulfils all requirements, you will receive a certificate valid for three years. After the certificate has been issued, you as an organization are required to carry out an annual re-certification until the self-assessment during the third year. The results of these self-assessments may be requested by TAPA.
