New rules on high se­cu­rity seals

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - FOOD -

The cut-off date for high se­cu­rity seals to be com­pli­ant with ISO17712:2013 – the in­ter­na­tional stan­dard for me­chan­i­cal seals – is 15 May.

For seals to be com­pli­ant they must be cat­e­go­rized and marked ‘H’ when un­der­go­ing me­chan­i­cal test­ing by an in­de­pen­dent ISO17025 ac­cred­ited lab­o­ra­tory, and the man­u­fac­turer must be cer­ti­fied to both ISO9001 and ISO17712.

High se­cu­rity seals must also be com­pli­ant with Clause 6: ev­i­dence of tam­per­ing. It re­quires the man­u­fac­turer to have a doc­u­mented and au­dited process.
