ISO 28000 Supply Chain Security Management Systems
What is ISO 28000?
ISO 28000 supply chain security management systems protect your goods from point of manufacturing to point of sale. As global trade expands, so do the opportunities for criminal elements to infiltrate your supply chain. Reduce the risks with ISO 28000 certification.
Supply chain security management systems based on the ISO 28000 certification standard identify the risk levels across your supply chain operations. This information then enables your organization to carry out risk assessments and apply the necessary controls with supporting management tools (i.e. document controls, key performance indicators, internal audit and training).
An ISO 28000 audit from SGS enables your supply chain security management system to be managed as a business process and its effectiveness to be measured and improved. This means resources can be focused on areas with high-risk concerns. It is also possible to benchmark against international standards.
It will also help your organization link security management to many other aspects of your business activities. Our ISO 28000 audit will look at all activities controlled or influenced by organizations that impact your supply chain security, including transportation of goods along the supply chain.
We can audit your organization’s systems against the ISO 28000 standard performing a gap analysis and if desired taking you through the full certification process.
