Definition – Facility Security Requirements (FSR)

The definition of the Facility Security Requirements (FSR) designed for Warehouse Security is to; 

  • Established to ensure the safe and secure in-transit storage and warehousing of any TAPA members’ assets throughout the world. 
  • Specifies the minimum acceptable standards for security throughout the supply chain and the methods to be used in maintaining those standards. 
  • Outlines the process and specification for suppliers to attain TAPA certification for their facilities and transit operations.

These Facility Security Requirements (FSR) have been established by security professionals within the high-tech industry to address the nature by which high-tech products and materials are handled, warehoused and transported as they move throughout the world. The FSR specifies the minimum acceptable security standards for assets travelling throughout the supply chain and the methods to be used in maintaining those standards.

In addition, the FSR outlines the processes and specifications for Suppliers to attain TAPA certification for their facilities and transit operations. It is the intention of TAPA members to select Suppliers which meet or exceed TAPA certification requirements. Successful implementation of the FSR is dependent upon Suppliers, TAPA Certified Auditors and Buyer working in concert to accurately interpret, adopt and audit against these requirements.
