Security management systems for the supply chain
Best practices for implementing supply chain security, assessments and plans — Requirements and guidance
The ISO 28000 (Specification for security management systems for the supply chain) defines the requirements of a Supply Chain Security Management System.
A management system in accordance with ISO 28000 provides a structured framework that draws attention to critical safety points in the supply chain, giving the organization the necessary control over all production and distribution processes, including road, rail, sea and air.
By implementing a security management system according to IS0 28000, an organization increases its reliability and security throughout its supply chain (up-stream and down-stream).
Products that have high value and / or risk can be transported worldwide and stored more securely.
ISO 28000 is designed for organizations that want to increase their security procedures in prevention, enforcement, traceability and documentation.
In addition, a supply chain security management system contributes substantially to increasing security awareness at all levels of the organization.
Finally, the application of the standard allows the organization to integrate various security models that it embraces (AEO, C-TPAT, TAPA, etc.) in a complete and effective system.
