HK’s AAT renews TAPA ‘A’ ISAGO certs


Hong Kong’s Asia Airfreight Terminal (AAT) has successfully renewed the highest Classification Level A under the enhanced Freight Security Requirement (FSR) Standards (2014 Version) of Transported Asset Protection Association (TAPA) in November 2014 for a three-year period.

The TAPA Certification is internationally recognised and widely considered as one of the most rigorous and independent logistics and supply chain security certifications. The TAPA certification process involves a wide range of stringent auditing, focusing on how the high-value cargo is securely handled throughout the global supply chain. The enhanced TAPA FSR 2014 Standards has further tightened up security requirements and taken major changes in the certification program to meet the emerging security threats. 

AAT has also successfully renewed the IATA Safety Audit for Ground Operations (ISAGO) Certification in November 2014 for a two-year period, achieving the stringent ISAGO qualification criteria and satisfactory standards in ground support equipment management, staff training, safety and security measures, and process management. This further ensures enhanced operational safety and efficiency within the airport ground operations environment by minimising ground accidents and the need for frequent audits by airlines on ground service providers.
