It is crucial that companies are aware that all cargo arriving by vessel at any port of entry in the United States are required to be sealed with a seal meeting the ISO/PAS 17712 standard for High Security.
As stipulated by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Homeland Security; in order to comply with the ISO/PAS 17712 standard, high security 17712 compliant seals need to "meet or exceed certain standards for strength and durability so as to prevent accidental breakage, early deterioration (due to weather conditions, chemical action etc.) or undetectable tampering under normal usage.
