Why did we need Self-Certification for TAPA Standards?

The Self-Certification option was introduced to help address two frequent comments we received from our members: 1. Question from Shipper/Buyer members: How can we source more Logistics Service Providers with TAPA certification capability? 2. Question from Logistics Service Provider members: Can TAPA help reduce costs of certification and re-certification? The introduction of Self-Certification was specifically targeted at the entry level of the Standards to promote growth in FSR C and TSR 3 certifications. The requirements did not change but the method to obtain certification for the entry level security levels was simplified by excluding the need for an external Independent Audit Body (IAB).
