APL current Container Bolt Seal inventory meets ISO 17712:2013 standard.
The ISO 17712:2013 high security seal includes features that generate tell-tale evidence of tampering. Some evidence of tampering includes:
1. Clamping marks on any sections of the plasticized or plain pin or bush
2. Signs of cutting and re-joining on the exposed shaft of the pin
3. Signs of cutting and re-joining around the base section of the bush
The current U.S. mandate requires that all maritime cargo containers destined for the United States be secured with a high-security ISO compliant seal.
All laden containers taken into APL’s custody must be secured with seals that meet or exceed ISO 17712 high security seal standards. Additionally, APL recommends that customers moving high value and/or sensitive cargo adopt an added level of security by using a theft deterrent barrier seal.
