The American National Standards Institute(ANSI) Homeland Security Standards Panel(HSSP) has released a workshop report examining approaches to safeguarding international supply chains – which rely heavily on transportation and postal infrastructure – from the dangers posed by counterfeiting, security threats, and other issues. The two-day event, Global Supply Chain Security Standards, was held September 12-13, 2012, in Washington, DC, and included representatives of government agencies and standards developing organizations (SDOs), among others. Participants examined the current US national strategy related to global supply chain protection, as well as the status of related standards being developed by public and private groups.
