Re:  ISO-17712:2010 Certificate of Conformance for Cable Bolt Seals (DualGuard)

LidunHologram has independent lab testing results on file to verify that our cable bolt seals have passed the test protocol for ISO/PAS 17712:2010(E) Clause 5 for High Security Seals:

Lab Test Report – B1023175-T01 dated Oct 29, 2012 by Metal Industries Research & Development Centre

Applicable Cable Product Codes:

The new ISO standard for bolt seals has 3 key components:

  1. New construction standards
  2. Structural Testing of the seals by a certified test lab.
  3. Tamper evident methods and tests by a certified lab.

The new standard for ISO 17712:2010 was effective on March 1, 2012.   However, as of this writing, the tamper evident testing portion of the standard has been delayed with no firm future implementation date.

A)  We certify that the bolt portion of the MS-C5B9 series cable bolt seals meet the new construction standards, which includes:

A1.  Minimum bolt diameter: Paragraph 4.4.3: Meets Requirements
- minimum 18mm width of the bolt head and locking mechanism

B)  We certify that both the cable and bolt portions of our MS-C5B9 series bolt seals received a PASS on the structural testing on all criteria and is rated as a High Security Seal:

B1. Tensile Test (Paragraph 5.2):  High Security Rating
B2. Sheer Test (Paragraph 5.3):   High Security Rating
B3. Bending Test (Paragraph 5.4):  High Security Rating
B4. Impact Test at Room Temperature (Paragraph 5.5): High Security Rating
B5. Impact Test at Reduced Temperature (Paragraph 5.5): High Security Rating

C)  However, since the tamper evident testing methods of ISO 17712:2010 are not finalized, we cannot certify this portion of the standard.   When the tamper evident testing specification is finalized, we will complete additional testing and update this certification as soon as possible.
