scope:

This international standard establishes guidelines for transport and condition monitoring of transported consignments such as agri-food and perishable goods, through the applications, models, processes, and information bundles established in ISO. This standard applies to both domestic and cross-border transport of transported consignments, and incorporates the methods described in "ISO/ 19845", "ISO/TS 24533" and "ISO/TS 17187" which are transport domain specific, as discussed above. Specific extensions include additional actors in the model related to especially, the agriculture transport sub-domain, with extended specific processes, and additional information items and/or information bundles for consignment conditions.

Figure 1 shows cargo movements transported by domestic carrier and includes cross-border. These carriers deliver consignments from producer (farmer or fisheries) or manufacturer to customer side through a logistics base in the global supply chain. Boundary of this international standard encompasses from producer or manufacturer through customer, origin to destination.

This transport information will be shared among the relevant participating business entities (such as; Inspection Service Provider). Sharing information such as agricultural certificate of origin, agricultural goods and status, and integrity of produce (regarding agricultural chemicals or radioactive material) will improve visibility and reliability of the goods transported (regarding contained or non-contained goods). In contrast to packaged goods, agriculture and perishable goods are transported through nonstandardized package units from consignor to consignee, and freshness and safety for agriculture goods is the most important factor regarding transportation. At food manufacturing industries, a company has to produce food product using raw agriculture material for examples, corn or salmon. Consumers want to know detailed information about the raw material or product; whether or not residual agriculture chemicals or radioactive matter which can remain in agriculture goods was found in agriculture products or perishable food products, or are exceeding the acceptable limits. Once a standard is established the global trade in food products will be enhanced and the logistics service such as cold-chain transportation will have increased value.

* A cold chain is a temperature-controlled supply chain. An unbroken cold chain is an uninterrupted series of storage and distribution activities which maintain a given temperature range. It is used to help extend and ensure the shelf life of products such as fresh agricultural produce, seafood, frozen food, photographic film, chemicals, and pharmaceutical drugs.

In order to use information across internal systems, and to integrate with systems deployed by trading partners, that information needs to be semantically coherent and in a format that is recognizable and usable by all parties. The policy for operating under these rules is that all business entities wishing to engage with other business partners to facilitate electronic trade using the tools described herein shall follow certain standards of practice for information interchange.

This international standard is envisioned to be the core standard for interoperability for all enterprises wishing to benefit from the resulting efficiencies as a member user. It includes transport data to satisfy the requirements of both businesses and governmental organizations. This international standard does not constrain the requirements of customs, regulatory, and safety bodies at border crossings but does include the data elements likely to be required by customs authorities, agriculture organizations, and other involved organizations.

This international standard is focused on transport of agriculture products as well as other products, and it is not to be confused with standards related to agriculture standards set by other standards organizations for regulation of food products. This standard only focuses on the monitoring of cargo condition of the safeness, freshness and reliability of the agri-food and perishable goods in transport.
