CDG is an accredited testing laboratory & inspection body for ISO 17712 certification.

Seals be designed and constructed with tamper indicative features that generate tell-tale evidence of tampering. Manufacturers of high-security seals are required to prove to an impartial third-party auditor and receive certification that their products are tamper-evident. If the seals submitted for review show the telltale evidence of tampering generated by attempts to defeat a correctly closed and affixed seal, the manufacturer will be given a certificate of compliance by the independent third-party organization. This certification must show that the organization is accredited to ISO 17020. Since seals are commonly broken in order to smuggle in illegal goods or steal a container, this is a huge step forward for C-TPAT containers and trailers that require the highest level of protection.  
ISO 17712 FOR SECURITY SEALS  
This ISO standard documents uniform procedures for the classification, acceptance and withdrawal of mechanical freight container seals. ISO 17712 defines 3 types of classes of security seal strength: “I” for indicative, “S” for security and “H” for high security, where H has the highest strength, also known as barrier capacity.  
Security seals has to be tested by an independent third-party laboratory to validate the security seal’s classification. The test laboratory must be accredited according to ISO 17025 for testing specific to ISO 17712.  
The ISO 17712 standard requires independent testing against three main categories:  
Security seals must be tested to determine its physical strength.  
Seals must be designed and constructed with tamper indicative features that generate tell-tale evidence of tampering.  
Manufacturer’s security-related business processes must be audited.  
More information and details about ISO 17712 can be found in ISO’s official documentation. 
CTPAT requires the use of ISO 17712 “H” class seals. Our high security seals are C-TPAT compliant. Do you want more information about our security seals 
Prior to installing and closing any seals, they should be verified and inspected according to the VVTT procedure:  
V: View seal and container locking mechanisms.  
V: Verify seal number for accuracy. 
T: Tug on the seal to make sure it is affixed properly. 
T: Twist and turn the seal to make sure it does not unscrew.  
To ensure compliance with the ISO 17712 standard, there is a need to have third-party verification that a supplier’s product and processes are up to par. Partners should inquire from their vendors for copies of relevant compliance certificates, such as those pertaining to product testing and company security procedures.  
A lab that has been accredited in accordance with ISO procedures, such as ISO 17025, is the only one to issue certifications attesting to the results of product testing. A third-party testing facility must vouch for the reliability of the test facility. 
Suppliers of the security seals as CDG must use independent third-party test laboratories to validate a seal’s classification. Labs must be accredited according to ISO/IEC 17025 (General requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories) to perform testing specific to ISO 17712.

REQUIREMENTS OF ISO 17712:2013 STANDARD Security and high-security seals shall be sufficiently durable, strong and reliable so as to prevent accidental breakage and early deterioration (due to weather conditions, chemical action, vibration, shock, etc.) in normal use. 
Impact of sand and dust, salt spray, grease, snow, ice and grime can be expected to coat the seal. 
Seals shall be identified by unique marks (such as a logotype) and unique numbers that are readily legible; markings intended for unique identification of the seal shall be considered permanent. All seals shall be uniquely numbered and identified. The identity of the manufacturer or private label holder shall be evident on every seal, either name or logo. 
Seals meeting the relevant criteria shall be marked or stamped in a readily legible way to identify their classification as indicative (“I”), security (“S”), or high-security (“H”) seals. 
Seals intended for use on freight containers moving under customs laws shall be approved or accepted and individually marked as determined by the relevant customs organization or competent authority. 
If the seal is to be used by private industry (i.e., a shipper, manufacturer or carrier), it shall be clearly and legibly marked and uniquely numbered and identified. It may also be marked with a company name or logo. 
Seals shall be designed and constructed so that tamper attempts create and leave evidence of that tampering. More specifically, seals shall be designed and manufactured to prevent removal or undoing the seal without breaking, or tampering without leaving clear visible evidence, or undetectable re-application of seals designed for single use. 
Seals constructed with plastic coating over metal components shall have sufficiently thick metal components so as to preclude removal of the plastic coating, opening of the seal and re-closing of the seal without leaving visual evidence of tampering. 
To preclude the simple removal of a bolt seal by pulling the pin head or locking body through a worn container hasp, the minimum diameter (or minimum widest cross dimension) for the metal components of a bolt seal shall be 18 mm.  
ISO17712:2013 COMPLIANT HIGH SECURITY SEALS 
May 15, 2014, the deadline date for all High Security Seals to be compliant with the new requirements of ISO17712:2013 – the international standard for mechanical seals. For seals to be compliant they must be categorized and marked “H” as High Security Seals when undergoing mechanical testing by an independent ISO 17025 accredited laboratory (Clause 5) and the manufacturer must be certified to both ISO9001 and ISO17712: Annex A.  
The new requirement for High Security Seals is that they must also be compliant with Clause 6: Evidence of Tampering. Clause 6 requires the manufacturer to have a documented and audited process and test specification in place in its quality manual for all High Security Seals in its product range. Clause 6 is a valuable addition to the seal standard emphasizing the importance of continuous improvement of tamper resistance and tamper indicating features on security seals.

CDG is an accredited testing laboratory & inspection body for ISO 17712 certification.

WHAT IS ISO 17712? ISO (International Organization for Standardization) is the world’s largest developer of voluntary International Standards. A standard is a document that provides requirements, specifications, guidelines or characteristics that can be used consistently to ensure that materials, products, processes and services are fit for their purpose. ISO International Standards ensure that products and services are safe, reliable, and of good quality. 
The ISO 17712 establishes “uniform procedures for the classification, acceptance, and withdrawal of mechanical freight container seals. It provides a single source of information on mechanical seals which are acceptable for securing freight containers in international commerce.  
ISO STANDARDS FOR SECURITY SEALS 
The current ISO 17712 standard requires independent confirmation in three areas: 
1. Testing to determine a security seals physical strength (as barriers to entry). ISO 17712 defines three types of classes of seal strength or barrier capacity: “I” for Indicative; “S” for Security; and “H” for High Security. C-TPAT requires the use of “H” class seals. Suppliers must use independent third-party test laboratories to validate a seal’s classification. Labs must be accredited according to ISO/IEC 17025 (General requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories) to perform testing specific to ISO 17712. 
2. Auditing of manufacturer’s security-related business processes. 
Poor security-related practices can undercut the effectiveness of a high-quality security seal. ISO 17712’s Annex A defines over two dozen required practices, such as facility risk assessments and access controls to production and storage areas. Suppliers’ conformance with Annex A should also be demonstrated through an independent certification provider that is accredited to audit compliance with the ISO standards. 
3. Seals be designed and constructed with tamper indicative features that generate tell-tale evidence of tampering. 
Security Seal manufacturers must be able to demonstrate to, and obtain certification from, an accredited auditor from an independent third-party organization that their high security seals have built-in tamper evidence features. If an independent third-party organization accredited to ISO 17020 verifies conformity, it will provide the manufacturer with a certificate of compliance that documents that the seals submitted for review do reflect tell-tale evidence of tampering generated by attempts to defeat a correctly closed and affixed seal. 
In order to verify that a High Security Seal is certified as ISO 17712:2013, contact your security seal supplier and ask them to submit the ISO certificates mentioned  
The manufacturer of the seal has to be ISO 9001 certified. 
The manufacturer of the seal has to be ISO 17712:2013 Annex A (Best Practices) certified. 
The mechanical strength of the seal has to meet or exceed the requirements of ISO 17712 Clause 5 High Security Seal category. This is documented by an ISO 17712:2013 “H” laboratory report / certificate for the seal. 
ISO17712: 2013 Clause 6 Tamper Evidence Compliance Letter 
The test laboratory performing the strength tests must be ISO 17025 accredited to perform ALL 5 mechanical tests according to ISO 17712:2013 Clause 5.

CDG is an accredited testing laboratory & inspection body for ISO 17712 certification.

ISO 17712 addresses all types of security seals usable on maritime containers. Since many other industries use the same seals, members of those industries also may choose to adopt ISO 17712.  
Compliance with ISO 17712 requires independent confirmation in three areas:  
Physical testing to determine a seal's classification for physical strength.  
Process auditing of supplier security-related business processes.  
Physical testing that earns a "Pass" grade for evidence of tampering. 
Scope  
This International Standard establishes uniform procedures for the classification, acceptance, and withdrawal of mechanical freight container seals. It provides a single source of information on mechanical seals which are acceptable for securing freight containers in international commerce.  
NOTE The purpose of mechanical seals is, as part of a security system, to determine whether a freight container has been tampered with, i.e., whether there has been unauthorized entry into the container through its doors. Seals can be effective only if seal users properly select, store, account for, apply, document, and attend to seals prior to use and in use; while these issues are not addressed in this International Standard, they are relevant to successful use of the seals covered by this International Standard. 
A high-security seal must be placed on all loaded containers destined for the United States, as stated in the C-TPAT security criterion. ISO 17712, the international standard for high-security seals, must be met or exceeded by all seals. It is possible for C-TPAT Partners to use the last of their ISO 17712:2010 high-security seals while they wait for ISO 17712:2013 high-security seals to become available for purchase. When seals can be altered before they are applied and closed, they are far more likely to be breached. Nobody who isn’t authorized or properly trained should ever handle a seal. Establishing a seal integrity mechanism between parties helps reduce the likelihood of seals being broken. 
HIGH SECURITY SEALS  
The current ISO security standard requires independent confirmation for testing to determine a security seals physical strength (as barriers to entry).  
The requirements for certain security level of seals are defined in this specific standard.  
The seals that belong to the High security level and Security level are also called “barrier seals”.  
They are made of different metals or metal alloys, meaning that they require special tools to be opened, such as bolt cutters or pliers.  
Cable seals and bolt seals also fall into this category of ISO 17712.  
Designed to deter opportunistic theft of high value goods, they also can often be branded and numbered to improve tamper resistance and provide excellent security for containers.  
The security seals that are in the Indicative level as to 17712 standard plastic seals or fixed closing thin metal seals.  
ISO 17712 standard defines three types of classes of seal strength or barrier capacity: “I” for Indicative; “S” for Security; and “H” for High Security. C-TPAT requires the use of “H” class seals. 
ISO 17712:2013 is a standard for mechanical seals. CDG is the world leading company in ISO 17712 certification. According to C-TPAT guidelines & some other safety standard ISO 17712 certified seal is mandatory for containers & trucks.
