During the test audit, an initial assessment is done based on interviews and a documentation review. This way, your organization will immediately get an idea of the feasibility of pursuing the certification.
In this phase, the documentation of the management system will be assessed. Furthermore, it will also be examined whether the management system is operational, to be able to continue with Stage 2 of the initial audit. Any deviations are reported to you, so that you can fix them before starting Stage 2 of the initial audit.
In this phase, we determine whether there is sufficient confidence that your organization meets the requirements. An important element of this phase is whether the organization works in accordance with the documentation on the ISMS.
If the findings that emerged from the audit have been resolved, the certificate will be granted to the organization.
The certificate is valid for three years. During this period, two surveillance audits are performed. We investigate whether the management system is consistently adhered to and whether any points for improvement are adequately managed.
If you would like to renew the certificate, the certification process must be restarted. Depending on the findings in previous years and the extent of the changes in the management system, we can start with a Stage 1 or Stage 2 audit.
Certification shows that your management system is based upon internationally accepted best practices. If this certificate has been issued by an internationally acclaimed party such as PwC, you can be confident that you will actually distinguish yourself with it. PwC is one of the few organizations capable of carrying out worldwide certifications for ISO27001, ISO9001 and ISO22301.
