In 2018, nearly 200 people undertook TAPA TSR and FSR training in India, including particularly high turnouts in Mumbai and Bengaluru. Of equal importance, the growing number of TAPA members now includes established and well-respected names in Indian industry, including:

• • •

Reliance Industries, one of the world’s largest refi ners

Flipkart, the large Indian commerce company

Kotak Mahindra Bank, one of India’s most profi table banks

• Mumbai International Airport, one of India’s private airport operators

The Indian business arms of global brands are present too, including Gulf Air, Ingram Micro, Amazon, Diageo India, Dell, PricewaterhouseCoopers India, Roche and several others.

Continuing to fulfi ll the needs of Indian and global companies provides an opportunity for tremendous growth for TAPA in the coming years.

"The training programme has been a wonderful experience for us. We hope industry

will see the value of TAPA certifi cation and come out in even bigger numbers through 2019. Both companies and individuals will benefi t with wider adoption of the TAPA Security Standards,” says Sanjay Kaushik, Managing Director, Netrika Consulting.

As India’s $2.6 trillion economy is poised to become the fi fth largest in the world, more training programmes will be needed. More auditors trained in the three levels of TAPA certifi cation will be of great assistance to companies. In addition to the use of international standards by homegrown companies, global businesses are also bringing some of their best practices into India’s industries. TAPA certifi cation courses will help companies standardise their processes and, in the years ahead, auditing professionals can work in tandem with the industry to improve supply chain resilience and effi ciency.

Tony Lugg, Chairman of TAPA APAC, said: “The TAPA APAC Board is committed to supporting the growth of our membership in India. Our Indian Service Centre delivered great results in 2018 by training nearly 200 members in our FSR and TSR Standards and we expect to see similar growth in 2019.”

Participants in the training courses were from various areas of industry across India, and included such well-known names as Amazon, Flipkart, Myntra Designs, Gulf Air, Mumbai International Airport, Air India SATS Airport Services, Sanofi , Teva, Johnson Matthey, MSD Pharmaceutical, Kotak Mahindra Bank, Mahindra Special Services Group and Transportation, and Uber.
