U.S. Based Security Seals Manufacturer, American Casting and Manufacturing, Provides Guidance for Control and Tracking of Seals by the User

PLAINVIEW, N.Y., Oct. 31, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- U.S. based security seals manufacturer, American Casting and Manufacturing, a family-owned manufacturing company that produces high-quality customizable security seals, provides guidance for control and tracking of seals by the user.

It is essential to use the correct security seals for the right application. Security seals are a tool to deter and detect unauthorized opening of a closure. They differ from locks in that they are intended to be used only once, and then destroyed. However, in turn, tamper evident seals by themselves can only do so much. While a variety of security seals exist, it is necessary to establish security seal control techniques and accountability procedures.

Identify the weaknesses that currently lie in any portion of the existing sealing system. For a user and their organization, utilize a comprehensive seal control program which will act as a system of checks and balances. Seals can be made to work effectively in tamper detection with appropriate application, a strong and well-enforced pro­gram for control and inspection, plus use of well-considered and adaptable countermeasures.

Here are some recommendations that should be used in conjunction with security seals:

  1. Use a trusted manufacturer. A responsible manufacturer, such as American Casting & Manufacturing tamper evident seals supplier, should assure that all seals have been accounted for and that serial numbers and barcodes have not been replicated.
  2. Always keep security seals in a secure location. Prevent fraudulent use by only allowing authorized personnel to have access to this area.
  3. The application of the seal is of utmost importance. For a seal to be effective, it must be applied properly and according to the instructions of the manufacturer. A designated official should be responsible for checking the security seal application.
  4. Maintain a log for outbound seals, as well as a separate log for inbound seal recording. Appoint specific employees who are authorized to apply or remove seals. Tracking should be consistent with detailed information such as the employee's identity, date and time of application, type of seal, and code associated with the particular seal.
  5. Consult with a professional. It is a necessity that users evaluate and determine their needs and understand the capabilities. If a security specialist does not exist within the organization, consult with a security seal manufacturer and request samples to find the right seal. Additionally, by consulting with a qualified supplier, an organization can develop and implement strong procedures and properly train staff.
