Notice of New High Security Seal Standards–March 1, 2012

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, it is recommended that they purchase seals which are compliant with the new ISO 17712:2010 standard.
