ISO 28000 certification from LRQA provides a framework for organisations that operate, or rely on, any aspect of the supply chain to assess and implement controls that mitigate security risks.
Benefits of ISO 28000
New business opportunities
ISO 28000 certification can help your organisation to gain a competitive advantage and win new business. It reassures your customers and other stakeholders that there are controls in place to mitigate supply chain security risks, protecting the safety of individuals and security of goods and services. This helps to simplify trade and in some cases even fast-track the transportation of goods across borders.
Manage supply chain security risks
Through the monitoring and management of security risks in your organisation and supply chain, ISO 28000 certification will help you to secure its own processes and allows management to focus resources in areas which maybe of greatest concern.
Improve efficiency and reduce costs
ISO 28000 certification allows transport and logistics organisations to improve efficiencies by following industry guidelines. It enables your organisation to benchmark your security management practices with international best practice, achieving cost savings through a reduction in security incidents and insurance premiums.
EU Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) compliance
If your organisation wants to apply for AEO status, ISO 28000 has acted as a baseline to develop Part 5: Safety and Security of the programme. This means ISO 28000 certification will substantially reduce the efforts needed to demonstrate compliance to the requirements in the EU’s AEO programme.
