If I get self-certified, no-one checks if my audit is accurate. I could say I meet all the requirements without doing anything. Is this a weakness in the scheme?

The self-certification option is the certified entry level of TAPA’s Facility, Trucking and Parking Security Requirements. TAPA will validate that correct responses have been submitted and will investigate and remove anyone from the programme who has deliberately falsified the information that has been submitted. This could also have implications for the applicant as their reputation with clients could be severely damaged. The higher levels of TAPA’s Security Standards which are available require a trained auditor to assess and validate the level of compliance in respect of the relevant TAPA Standard.
