US requirements

Posted: 23/08/2013

In the aftermath of the 9/11 disaster, the US Customs & Excise had a thorough review of security standards at their ports. Amongst other changes, this review made mandatory the sealing of all containers entering the US – either empty or fully loaded.

The current requirement is that all containers entering the US be sealed with a seal that conforms to ISO PAS 17712:2013 and is C-TPAT compliant.

Security & Cargo Seals Limited stock Bolt and Cable seals that comply with this standard.
