The TAPA Air Cargo Security Standards (TACSS)

These standards have been established to ensure the minimum standards for safe and secure transportation of air cargo transiting on and off airports and airport associated facilities. TACSS consolidates security solutions for air cargo, including best known methods from industry and government compliance programs. The TACSS process comprehends threats to cargo that include theft and use of cargo for terrorist purposes. TACSS can be used in alignment with other independent, regulatory and TAPA requirements.

Transported Asset Protection Association is an association of security professionals and related business partners involved in the supply chain of high value and vulnerable goods who have organized for the purpose of addressing existing and emerging security threats to cargo security in the global supply chain.
