Product description Barrier Container Seal RSS

The Barrier Container Seal RSS is just like the standard Barrier Container Seal a further developed high-end container seal. The difference between the two seals is the Removable Security Sticker with barcode for the CMR. Due to its unique fraud prevention features, the container seal has the official ISO 17712: 2013 certificate . The seal has now been approved by customs authorities worldwide, including C-TPAT and ISPS. The one-off unique print and the well thought-out design make fraud virtually impossible.

The advice is to seal the seal with the pin down. This prevents moisture or other liquid from entering the can.

The unique properties of the Barrier Container Seal RSS

  • With handy RSS (Removable Security) Sticker for the CMR
  • Same quality design as the Barrier Container Seal
  • Container seal with the Official ISO 17712: 2013 Certificate
  • Approved by customs authorities worldwide, including C-TPAT (USA)
  • Provided with one-off unique imprint and ascending numbering (Barcode)

Equipped with handy RSS (Removable Security) Sticker for the CMR

For extra convenience, the seal is provided with an RSS sticker. The letters RSS stand for Removable Security Sticker. Just like the seal itself, the sticker has the unique numbering. The number on the sticker is identical to the number on the seal. The numbering is also shown in the form of a barcode / barcode. Easily scan the number of the seal with a barcode scanner. This saves additional time and can prevent errors in notation. The numbering of the seal must be noted on the CMR.

With the Barrier Container Seal RSS, the RSS sticker with barcode can easily be stuck to the CMR. This means that the numbering does not have to be overwritten.

The same quality design as the Barrier Container Seal

The application of ISO certified container seals for international container transport is mandatory. The seal ensures that unauthorized persons cannot enter the container area. This can prevent fraud, damage and theft. The Barrier Container Seal RSS is, just like the standard Barrier Seal, one of the strongest and high-quality container seals available.

Like other container seals, the Barrier Container Seal RSS consists of two parts, namely a pin and a canister. The two parts can be clicked together so that the seal is sealed. The seal is provided with a further developed anti-spin system. With this, the two parts of the seal cannot be loosened with, for example, a cordless drill. This is possible with many other seals, making the Barrier Container Seal RSS safer.

The second measure in the design to prevent spinning off is the design of the click system in the steel housing. The click system is in the form of a barb. This ensures that the seal cannot be spun loose. With lower quality container seals, use is made of a metal ring with a small opening, behind which the pin can be anchored. This design is more susceptible to fraud as opposed to the click system such as the Barrier Container Seal RSS. A barb cannot be rotated too loosely.

As a third measure, the plastic (ABS) housing ensures a tighter closure. This makes it impossible to access the click system of the seal without visible damage. The ABS plastic layer also provides protection against, for example, corrosion of the container seal.

The container seal has a steel pin with a diameter of 8 mm. At the end of the pen there is an extra deep groove behind the spherical tip. This groove clicks into the steel bush. This creates a safer closure compared to a standard seal. Reopening is not possible without visible damage.

Both ends of the seal have a diameter of 22 mm and are made of steel and ABS plastic. For example, it is not possible to hit the seal through the lock of the container. Due to the high breaking strength of 1,700 kg, the container seal can only be broken with strong bolt cutters.

Container seal provided with the official ISO 17712: 2013 Certificate

For the transport of export containers, a container seal is provided with the ISO 17712: 2013 certificate a requirement. The Barrier Container Seal RSS has been tested and approved by an independent third party. The forward-thinking US company Dayton T. Brown has extensively tested and approved the seal.

The process consists of two parts, namely: inspecting the product and inspecting the production process of the seal. The stamps are checked for a number of physical properties. For example, the seal must bear the manufacturer’s name, among other things. The seal must also be provided with a unique imprint and ascending numbering. Finally, the seal must bear the letter “H” which stands for High Security. As a result, container seals are also called High Security Seals.

Furthermore, the seal must be provided with a series of aspects to prevent fraud. First of all, the seal must have an anti-spin system. Second, the seal must have a minimum breaking strength, so that the seal cannot be opened without tools. Finally, both ends must be made of steel and have a minimum width. This is because the seal cannot be knocked through the lock. These aspects are tested in the lab of Dayton T. Brown in the US.

In addition to certifying the seal, the production process and quality assurance are also considered. Every container seal must be reliable and meet the strict requirements of ISO.

Approved by customs authorities worldwide, including C-TPAT (USA)

Container sheds with the official ISO17712: 2013 are mandatory for intercontinental transport. Customs authorities around the world only accept officially certified container seals. For example, also requires the US Customs Authority (C-TPAT) only ISO certified container seals. The term C-TPAT stands for Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism and is a collaboration between Mexico, Canada and the United States, among others.

There is also a collaboration in the maritime sector, namely the International Ship and Port Facility Security Code, abbreviated to ISPS. This code was developed by the International Maritime Organization and aims to prevent terrorism from ships and port facilities. Again, it is mandatory to use a ISO 17712: 2013 certified container seal use.

Provided with one-off unique imprint and ascending numbering

Each container seal is provided with a unique combination of printing and numbering. These requirements come from the ISO regulations. The Barrier Container Seal RSS is supplied from stock with the text “BARRIER SEAL” in combination with a unique ascending numbering. This in the form of a numerical number and in the form of a barcode. Both Navacqs and the manufacturer of the seal ensure that this unique combination is only produced once.
