TAPA is a global leader in Transportation Security – and now DQS is going global with them. We started with the EMEA region in 2016, we continue now with Asia-Pacific (APAC) and we are looking forward to becoming a TAPA Global Certification Partner worldwide.

In May 2020, DQS signed the Memorandum of Understanding with TAPA APAC. From this time on, we are registered and able to offer the TAPA products in this region. Our thanks go to the team of DQS HongKong as well as to Andreas Völkerding, Program Manager at DQS GmbH, for their hard work to achieve this milestone for DQS Group.

The TAPA portfolio offered by DQS consists of:

TAPA TSR – Trucking Security Requirements The requirements of TAPA TSR are concerned with transport itself, i.e. the truck and related equipment (motor vehicles and trailers), processes and their control within the organization as well as a special communications infrastructure.

TAPA FSR – Facility Security Requirements TAPA FSR contains requirements for safe and secure storage and warehousing of items of property. This standard is needed in case of risk and/or when required by a customer or logistics service provider.

How can you benefit from a TAPA certificate?

  • Improved protection of high value goods
  • Systematic reduction of liability risks and security threats
  • Strong competitive edge and reputation boost from greater transparency
  • Potential for synergies with standards such as ISO 9001, GDP
  • Worldwide recognition for commitment to excellence, sustainability and reliability

More details and product sheets can also be found on the DQS Holding Website, both for TSR and for FSR.
