DKSH’s healthcare supply chain receives TAPA certification for upholding security standards in Malaysia

DKSH Malaysia’s healthcare distribution center in Shah Alam has achieved TAPA’s level “A” certification for Facility Security Requirements – an internationally recognized accreditation for world-class standards of security and safety practices in logistics and supply chain.

Petaling Jaya, Malaysia, June 24, 2019 – DKSH, the leading Market Expansion Services provider with a focus on Asia, has received the level “A” certification in Facility Security Requirements (FSR) for its Shah Alam distribution center in Selangor. The certification has been granted by the prestigious Transported Asset Protection Association (TAPA) which sets one of the highest standards worldwide for supply chain security.

 

DKSH Malaysia is the second among DKSH’s 35 markets to receive the top-level certification from TAPA in Facility Security Requirements (FSR). In January this year, DKSH’s Mapletree distribution center in Hong Kong had achieved this accreditation for the healthcare supply chain.

 

Loke Kah Keong, Vice President, Supply Chain Management, DKSH Malaysia, said: “As a leading Market Expansion Services provider with a strong focus on marketing, sales and distribution, we maintain a high level of product stewardship for the goods in our custody. We recognize the importance of supply chain security in ensuring the integrity of our services and of the products in our care. This TAPA certification is testament to our commitment to increasing and improving security as well as meeting the strict requirements of our clients and customers.”

 

The TAPA certification is known worldwide as one of the most stringent and independent logistics and supply chain security certifications. As a non-profit organization, TAPA unites global manufacturers, logistics providers, law enforcement agencies and other stakeholders with the common aim of reducing cargo losses from supply chains through the development and application of global security standards. Consisting of three levels, FSR “A”’ being the highest, the TAPA certification process involves a wide range of auditing by independent TAPA-trained and accredited auditors. It focuses on how the goods are securely handled throughout the whole supply chain in the facility.

 

Together with the Good Distribution Practice (GDP), Good Distribution Practice for Medical Device (GDPMD), ISO 9001 and ISO 13485 certifications, DKSH is proud to also be certified under TAPA, proving its commitment to establishing, implementing and maintaining a comprehensive security management system to protect people, products and clients’ properties.
