Chairman Message To all TAPA Asia Pacific (AP) members, I hope you had a great year in 2013 and raring to create more success stories in 2014, the Chinese lunar year of the Horse. When I join TAPA Asia Pacific region (formerly known as TAPA Asia) back in 2001, li le was known of this non‐profit supply chain security organiza on, except from word of mouth from industry players. With an ambi ous goal to secure global supply chain with li le resources with few members, few was willing to bet on this dark horse, whilst there were many who an cipated its demise within a few years. Today, TAPA AP, a dark horse s ll but no longer a young foal, have grown our stables across Asia Pacific, spreading our membership and cer fied sites in all major countries within our region. With over 1000 security professionals in various mul na onal companies who depends on secured global supply chain to secure their profit margins, TAPA Asia Pacific has earned our esteemed posi on as the only non‐profit organiza on in the global industry, recognised for our success in securing supply chains with our security standards. By pu ng our joint knowledge of supply chain security together, TAPA members have created an end to end supply chain security requirements, covering warehouses (FSR) , trucking (TSR), and at transit stops at airports (TACSS). Various government bodies and private industries, such as the pharmaceu cal and food industries, have also approached TAPA for consulta on and joint projects to promote supply chain security at their areas of concerns, such as checkpoints and cold chain security. As Sun Tze (a Chinese military general, strategist and philosopher who lived in the Spring and Autumn Period of ancient China) states, “Know yourself and your enemy, a thousand ba les will beget a thousand victories”. Beside hardening our supply chain infrastructure, TAPA AP has partnered with SIMM and various ter ary educa onal ins tu ons to promote TAPA security awareness modules to their students, so that they will join their supply chain industry with a security mindset and serve their customers be er. Also, the launch of the TCE/TCS/TCC (TAPA Cer fied Expert, Specialist and Coordinator) program in year 2013 is slowly gaining acceptance within the HR (Human Resource) community as it acts as an pla orm to recognise supply chain security professionals of varying experience and knowledge. I have enjoyed a wonderful 12 years with TAPA, having the opportunity to serve 4 terms as chairman and 1 term as vice chairman. My thanks to the various TAPA AP management commi ee and board members who have trusted and served along with me, cra ing out the strategies and programs for Asia Pacific region. Without these selfless individuals, TAPA AP will not win the various races and emerged victorious on all occasions. The me to hand over the baton is here. Having worked along with Tony Lugg for many years, I am confident that Tony will steer the Associa on to greater heights and he will surely carve new horizon and fron ers. Together with the new members of his Board, I am assured that they will uphold the collec ve efforts, bring more members into our stable, for fy our supply chain security, and bring the envisaged plans for now and in the future to reality. So here's wishing all TAPA members and your companies, in the year of the Horse, a successful ride to the finishing line.

Jason Teo Chairman 2011‐2013 TAPA Asia Pacific

The urge is to push TAPA‐TSR to be an encompassing security standard for transport in these countries whereby the informa on, movement, cargo manifest and data related to every facet of the end to end transporta on can be streamlined with security and safety taking the main stream in the supply chain.

This proposed Act seeks to strengthen physical security, especially to prevent willful food contamina on, to significantly minimize or prevent hazards such as food poisoning. Mr Asou correlated the significant match to TAPA FSR requirements. In the future, security of manufacturing facili es and warehouses of Japanese food companies will be strengthened in order to clear the US FDA audits. This will be an effec ve means of promo ng TAPA cer fica on. The US FDA has announced that the rule will be effec ve January 4, 2014.

Compliance Verse Certification Compliance is defined as mee ng the requirements of rules, guidelines, regula ons, legisla on, specified standards or the terms of a contract. In this instance, it will reference adherence to the standards within the corporate world.

specific standards are thoroughly reviewed before a company can become cer fied. A er compliance has been confirmed and deemed complete, the accredited body typically issues a cer ficate of compliance or conformance to illustrate that the criteria for cer fica on has been sa sfied.

Cer fica on is a ained when a third party, typically an accredited group, recognizes an organiza on as being in compliance with the stated requirements or standards. During the cer fica on process, the company or en ty desiring cer fica on must understand the current standards to ensure its compliance. The implementa on of the prac ces, processes and procedures are performed according to the standards and a thorough review is completed by the third party to ensure all requirements have been met in order to obtain the cer fica on.

If the benefits and added value of compliance are present without the a ainment of a cer ficate of compliance, why would a company seek cer fica on? It's quite simple. Companies seek cer fica on to demonstrate to customers and the corporate world that its process, prac ces and procedures have been validated as conforming to the specified requirement or standard.

Internal reviews are o en performed to verify compliance without the engagement of a third party to validate this compliance. In such cases where an en ty seeking valida on as opposed to cer fica on, the company may be audited by a customer to ensure they have met the prescribed standards for contract terms in rela on to quality, security, health and safety.

TAPA Asia Board Member Participation In a Humanitarian DRT Effort An account…… On Wednesday 20th November 2013, I arrived at Cebu airport in the Philippines to lead a team of 10 DHL employees from across Asia Pacific who are part of a Global Disaster Response Team (DRT) to assist the United Na ons Office for the Coordina on of Humanitarian Affairs (UN OHCA) relief effort. Under normal circumstances Cebu airport receives 5 cargo freighters each year and have a structure that supports these volumes. Approximately 40 aircra pallet posi ons with around 100tonne of cargo.

By Mark Butcher

How do you cope when you receive 5‐6 freighters each day and night for an extended period? You do the best you can and adapt to the condi ons to ensure your equipment and manpower con nues to operate effec vely. All available equipment including Tugs and Dollies were u lized but the huge volumes made normal processes untenable and cargo was eventually unloaded straight onto the tarmac where the DHL DRT would then recover the aircra pallets and transfer the cargo to the respec ve aid agencies (NGO). The aircra pallets would then be broken down and prepared for either road transporta on or military C130 aircra .

In consulta on with the Airport authori es and the military, the DRT was able to establish an end to end process which resulted in the 747 freighters being unloaded efficiently removing the need to double handle the cargo and u lising the resources available in a more effec ve manner.

During any deployment you con nue to re‐assess the situa on and adapt accordingly and during this deployment I travelled to one of the hardest hit areas, Taclaban to assess the possibility of running a logis c team from that loca on. (photos below of Taclaban airport)

like the UN Development Programme, DPDHL's strategic GARD partner. Working closely with the GARD team, the officials will conduct site inspec ons and draw up plans to op mize relief goods handling, and streamline both internal airport processes and the lines of communica on between the agencies involved. Many organisa ons are now seeing the advantage of planning for the inevitable disaster or crisis by preparing Business Con nuity plans rather than trying to find a solu on a er the event. Those companies who have developed a Business Con nuity Plan are normally the first to recover a er a disaster with minimal disrup on to their business. To all those people in the affected areas we wish them a safe and speedy recovery. TAPA Asia takes this opportunity to salute the grandeur and brave efforts of Mark Butcher, our Board Member and his

Due to safety, security and equipment factors it was deemed not to set up a logis cs base at Taclaban but to con nue to support from Cebu on a daily basis if required. A er 4 weeks the DHL DRT pulled out of Cebu and handed over the airport logis cs back to the Airport management and their ground handling agent, but have put in place the oppur nuty for them to par cipate in a training package that will prepare them to be er equip themselves should another disaster arise. The program is called GARD (Get Airport Ready for Disaster). This was run by DHL and over a number of days, all organisa ons within the airport opera ons a ended this training and developed their own Disaster Prepareness plan for any future disasters. GARD seminars were introduced in 2009 in Indonesia and have been introduced worldwide where airports have been iden fied in disaster prone areas. A endees will include representa ves from civil avia on, customs and cargo opera ons, the police and emergency services, the military and private airlines, and resident NGOs

team from DHL for their altruis c and humane philanthropic sacrifice. Big hearted are these guys and surely our respect goes to them and may such collabora ve efforts come out more not only just in our business supply chain but also in humanitarian par cipa on as this. Mark keep it up man!!! TAPA Asia applauds you…

TAPA Asia FSR 2014 Introduction Session TAPA Asia took the opportunity to post organise a FSR training immediately a er the TAPA Asia Supply Chain Security Conference in November 2013. In line with TAPA's World Wide Change Control Board (WWCCB) announcement of the TAPA 2014 standards especially pertaining to TAPA FSR which is to come into force in 2014, TAPA Asia called for the new FSR dra implementa on training for its members and Independent Audit Bodies (IAB). The 2 days training was held at Carlton Hotel, Singapore facilitated by TAPA Asia Board members namely Jason, Tyn, Nilo and Eddie along with the team from the TA PA Secretariat who coordinated the training

auditors of IAB in Asia. The training witnessed strong debate on the mandatory requirements classified in the new dra and much conversa on was on the implementa on and audi ng matrix. The trainers (TAPA Asia Board Members) made every a empt to clarify the doubts and ensured that the mandatory status of all components to the FSR 2014 standards has been thoroughly discussed and the implementa on is in line with the relevance and applica on to today's demand and challenges of the supply chain security requirements. TAPA Asia Board congratulates all par cipants who successfully completed the training and hopes that the

administra on and coordina on. Freight Security Requirements (FSR) set minimum standards for security and industry best prac ces for facili es storing and handling HVTT assets. They also specify the proper methods for maintaining those standards. TAPA Asia members who purchase supply chain services should choose suppliers who meet or exceed TAPA's FSR cer fica on requirements. FSR cer fica ons apply to individual facili es and not en re companies. Companies that achieve FSR cer fica on for their facili es can claim to be “TAPA‐cer fied” only for that designated facility and not for every facility of their company. Facili es must receive FSR cer fica on through an audit process from a TAPA‐approved auditor. The training indeed a racted a wide range of security professionals numbering more than 40 par cipants coming from manufacturing companies, logis c service providers, transport companies as well as a strong par cipa on from

implementa on of this new standard in 2014 will be smoothly accomplished. TAPA Asia's Audit and Cer fica on Commi ee welcomes enquiries and clarifica on from its members pertaining to TAPA Asia 2014 Standards. All of such request can be directed to TAPA Asia Secretariat and we will ensure that we would provide immediate response to the effect.
