Transported Asset Protection Association (TAPA) – Freight Security Requirements

Stay Secure with TAPA’s Freight Security Requirements Standards

Security is of paramount importance today, especially for high tech companies. The Transported Asset Protection Association (TAPA) is an organization made up of security professionals representing high tech companies and related service providers.

TAPA has developed two sets of standards: Freight Security Requirements (FSR) and Truck Security Requirements (TSR). FSR – which can be achieved at one of three levels: class A, B, and C, with class A being the highest level of security – monitors the level of security for facilities and warehouses used for storing and transporting goods.

TÜV Rheinland – the only company in Asia with ISO 28000 accreditation and one of only two globally – can help you meet TAPA’s FSR standards. Through our global network, we have highly skilled auditors with experience in multiple security standards who will work with you to ensure that your standards are all they should be.
