BS 15713Destruction of Confidential Material
Protect your confidential materials and dispose of them securely
The BS 15713 Standard is a set of guidelines following industry best-practice for the secure storage and disposal of sensitive materials.
It covers the security of the premises, as well as how confidential material is collected, handled, transported, stored and destroyed – from the point of collection to the completion of destruction.
Provide your customers, stakeholders and other interested parties with reassurance that confidential and commercially sensitive information – such as internal planning and strategy documents, and records containing personal information – is securely stored and appropriately disposed of.

How to get BS 15713
Gaining BS 15713 certification with QMS is straightforward and can take as little as 45 days. Our expert consultants will work with you and your business to make the process as simple as possible.
This includes highlighting any improvements you need to make to your current business procedures.
Our 3-stage certification process ensures you get the help you need at every step. We can even create your Management System manual for you – saving you time and money.
A QMS Consultant will visit your Organisation to review and document your current processes and procedures, highlighting any areas that do not meet the requirements of the Standard.
Now it's time to make sure any required process or procedural changes are made, as highlighted in the Review. QMS can provide templates to assist you in doing this.
An Auditor must now visit your Organisation to check that the documented processes are being followed and that the necessary changes have been made. Once they are satisfied, you will be awarded your certification.
How much does an BS 15713 cost?
The cost of certification depends on several factors. These include your sector, annual turnover, and number of employees. We will also need to know if you require industry specific accreditation (such as ASCB or UKAS).
However, QMS is committed to providing a cost-effective route to BS 15713 certification. That’s why we focus on making the process straightforward. We will save you money because, instead of creating complex document trails, we will build a Management System for the secure destruction of confidential material that works for you.
