It has been mentioned at TAPA meetings that the Association will be looking into “modular” standards. Are there any updates on what’s happening?

This is an exciting area of development for TAPA. The concept of modular standards is basically a ‘plug and play’ system that allows existing TAPA Standards to be expanded to include other forms of storage, transport and security controls. The current project is looking at adapting the TSR Standard to include other types of vehicles, trailers and containers not typically covered by the current TSR version. This work is in the ‘concept approval’ phase and updates will be shared with members before any decisions to implement proposals are taken. If the modular approach is successful with TSR, the next phase would be to look at other types of storage facilities that could benefit from an FSR modular standard.
