ISO 2800 Standard for Supply Chain Security, Improving Performance and Reducing Risk
ISO 28000 supply chain security
ISO 28000 is an international standard for security management systems for the supply chain. It is suitable for all sizes and types of organisations including service industries, transportation, energy, manufacturing and marine.
Certification to ISO 28000 provides a valuable framework for organisations working in, or relying on, the logistics industry helping minimise the risk of security incidents and so help problem-free ‘just in time’ delivery.
It will also provide substantial support in achieving the EU Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) certification, a crucial certificate for companies importing and exporting with the EU.
ISO 28000 is a risk based management system standard which is also based on the ‘plan – do – check – act’ model in a similar way to the ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 standards. This means that those organisations already familiar with these standards will be able to use a similar approach when analysing supply chain security risks and threats and also be able to integrate the requirements of ISO 28000 into an existing management system.
Benefits of ISO 28000
- Minimise risk – reduce the risk of security incidents which could impact on crucial delivery times
- Reducing costs – identifying potential incidents early reduces the risk to your bottom line
- Best practice – continual improvement of processes will benefit your organisation in the long run
- Stakeholder confidence – demonstrate your commitment to supply chain security and your customers’ security
