ISO 17712:2013(E)
With the release of the second edition of this standard ISO have attempted to resolve the outstanding issues relating to the Tamper Testing of security seals for which a manufacturer is claiming compliance to the standard. The burden for tamper testing has been placed on the individual manufacturers who now have a 12 month period in which to introduce their own set of tamper tests on their own products, put in place a system for recording the dates of tests, the test procedures and equipment used and maintain their own in-house records that are to be independently audited probably at the time of the official audit of their main Q.A. processes, usually ISO 9001. The tamper testing frequency is to be every two years, as per the physical property testing cycle but there is no direct reference to the frequency of any audit for compliance to Annex A (Normative) of the standard. We at Acme Seals will put everything in place by the mandated deadline of May 2014 and we will voluntarily instigate a new audit in respect of continued compliance to the Annex A (Normative) section of ISO 17712:2010(E). ALL EXISTING CUSTOMERS AND PROSPECTS MAY REST ASSURED THAT THE ACME BOLT SEAL IS FULLY COMPLIANT WITH THIS STANDARD UP TO MAY 2014 AND IT WILL REMAIN FULLY COMPLIANT THEREAFTER.
