ISO 28000Supply Chain Security Management System

Manage security risks throughout the supply chain

Security Management has become an increasing challenge for industries worldwide, but is more commonly a challenge within supply chains. This is because supply chain partners are often located in varying locations worldwide, meaning that they are subject to varying regulations and processes.

ISO 28000 specifies the requirements for a security management system in the supply chain, covering those aspects which are critical to security assurance. It will help you to identify potential threats, control and influence activities that impact on supply chain security, including the transportation of goods, and ensure continuity of business.

Why should I apply for ISO 28000 certification?

Organisations will often choose to gain the ISO 28000 certification to demonstrate to customers and other interested parties that they have a systematic security management system in place, protecting their supply chain. But the standard brings several additional benefits, including:
