BASC Certification proves the solidity and effectiveness of the Security Control Management System of Yobel Logistics S.A. as a Logistic Operator in Costa Rica
BASC -Business Alliance for Secure Commerce- is an international business alliance that promotes safe trade in cooperation with governments and international organizations. It is established as a non-profit organization, with the denomination “World BASC Organization” under the laws of the State of Delaware, United States of America.
To be a certified BASC company, a Security Management and Control System must be formally implemented, which must comply with all the requirements established in the regulations and standards published by the World BASC Organization. After going through an audit, which verifies compliance and adherence to the regulations, then the respective certification is obtained. In the world of safety, the BASC certification can be considered as the equivalent of an ISO 9000 certification in the world of quality.
The companies certified under the BASC Management System show compliance with the requirements of security programs established by different international organizations, such as: The Framework of Standards of the World Customs Organization (Reliable Economic Operator) implemented by the European Union, as well as the C-TPAT program of the US Customs and Border Protection Office (CBP), and the Costa Rica Reliable Trade Customs Facilitation Program (PROFACC) of the General Directorate of Customs.
The most significant benefit for a BASC certified company is being part of a prestigious group of companies recognized worldwide for their concern on establishing the necessary security measures in the logistics chain of exports and imports.
In June 2015, Yobel SCM Costa Rica began the preparation process to obtain the BASC certification as a Logistic Operator. As part of this, it defined and published its Security Policy, established procedures and work instructions, trained its staff and strengthened the protocols of interaction with its business associates, thus aligning with the requirements of the BASC regulations and logistic operator standards. One year later, Yobel SCM Costa Rica obtained the BASC Certification as a Logistic Operator. With this certification, the clients of Yobel SCM Costa Rica can be sure that their products and merchandise enjoy a higher level of security. They can also be assured that their valuable products and merchandise are in very good hands thanks to the effective security management and control system that seeks to mitigate and act on any risk.
According to the BASC regulations, from the entry and selection of Yobel employees and business associates, as well as the operational and commercial processes that are executed in their facilities, etc., they are all scrutinized and thoroughly reviewed to ensure safety.
“The Storage, Distribution, Manufacturing and third-party management of logistics operations (3PL) services offered by Yobel SCM Costa Rica to its clients have a higher level of security. This is a direct benefit for Yobel SCM’s clients and their final clients, since there are no additional costs and inefficiencies in the supply chain due to security incidents. This definitely helps our clients being more successful, and maximizes the value chain so that final consumers can also enjoy better conditions to acquire their products and services”, said Mario Vargas.
