The TAPA TSR certification has 3 levels, with increasingly stringent requirements.
- Level 1 = Elevated Security Protection
Level 2 = Moderate Security Protection
Level 3 = Basic Security Protection
TAPA sets these requirements every 3 years. In the TSR security requirements for trucks you can read what you need to comply with per level.
We have listed the most important TSR requirements for you:
The following applies to TSR 1 and 2:
A. Electronic locks, automatic or manually operated
B. Unique locks (duplicate codes/keys/passwords to open different locks not permitted)
C. Locks and fixing devices must be able to withstand substantial force and be tamper evident.
For TSR 3, you may decide how to secure the doors, as long as you document it in your internal procedure.
Tracking and tracing
There are different network requirements for TSR 1 (3, 4 or 5G + SMS/GPRS) and TSR 2 (3G + SMS/GPRS). With TSR 1 there may be a maximum of 5 minutes between 2 reports (of truck and trailer) and with TSR 2 this is 30 minutes. TSR 3 allows the data from the track and trace device to be logged and read out later.
For TSR 1 (2020) a loud alarm in case of unauthorized opening of the cargo space is mandatory. For TSR 2 and 3 this is not required.
