    Significance and Use

    3.1 This guide is intended as general guidance in establishing procedures for internal control of the security seals. It is not meant to restrict the use of procedures that may be required for unique or unusual situations. Likewise, not all of the practices will necessarily apply to a particular situation.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This guide covers procedures for maintaining a continuous line of accountability for security seals from the time of manufacture to destruction of the seal subsequent to its use.

    1.2 The procedures contained herein are applicable to usage of security seals that are coded or numbered in a manner to make each seal unique. See also Classification F832.

    1.3 This standard does not purport to address the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

    1.4 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
