ISO 22301 Business Continuity Accreditation
Certification Europe is accredited to audit and issue certificates for BS 25999. No organisation has been accredited to ISO 22301 Business Continuity yet. This means that Certification Europe has the authority, expertise and know how to go into organisations and assess them against the requirements of BS 25999.
Only certification bodies can be accredited for a standard. As an accredited certification body, Certification Europe certifies its clients when they have successfully met the requirements of BS 25999. It is a common misconception that organisations think that they can become BS 25999 accredited.
ISO 22301 Accreditation Bodies (BS 25999)
Accreditation bodies audit the auditors. They give the certification bodies the authority to go about certifying other organisations. Certification Europe undergoes periodic assessments by our accreditation bodies, INAB (Irish National Accreditation Board) and UKAS (United Kingdom Accreditation Service).
ISO 22301 Certificates and BS 25999 Certificates
A Certification Europe BS25999 accredited certificate will be recognised globally by any organisation. If a certification is issued by an unaccredited certification body then this will hold little credibility.
