Can you give an example of unacceptable and acceptable evidence for escorted visitors who are permitted access to the warehouse areas? TAPA FSR: 4.4.4 LSP’s/Applicant’s authorized workforce and escorted visitors permitted access to dock/warehouse areas based on a business need and restricted.

Unacceptable evidence comments: Visitors to dock/warehouse always escorted. Acceptable evidence comments: Auditor observed visitors being escorted into dock/ warehouse during the live audit. LSP provided copies of procedures that confirmed that LSP’s own employees and visitors were subject to controls. Access to dock/warehouse for LSP’s own employees require the warehouse manager to approve before admission is permitted. Visitors must be escorted by an employee with permission to access the warehouse.
