These days of heightened security preparedness, the U.S. Department of Defense Manual has implemented new security requirements for the terminal destruction of Top Secret COMSEC documents by implementing NSA/CSS Specification 02-01. This specification spells out exacting standards for maximum particle area and maximum particle dimensions as well as setting a tough standard for durability. Dahle High Security paper shredders are engineered to exceed NSA/CSS Specification 02-01 without compromise to operation or dependability. Dahle High Security paper shredders are perfect for military, Federal, State or local government agencies as well as Department of Defense Manual contractors engaged in projects where National Security is an issue.
