WHAT IS THATISO 28000 , an internationally recognized certifiable standard, defines the requirements for the implementation of a security management system along the supply chain (Supply Chain Security).
The standard provides guidance on the management of critical issues and potential threats at all stages of the supply chain such as terrorism, fraud, piracy and counterfeiting.
The standard, taking up the classic PDCA (plan-do-check-act) model, was structured according to the points of ISO 14001 and is aimed at all organizations involved in the supply chain of goods of any type (e.g. warehousing, transport, logistics, etc.).
The ISO 28000 family consists of 4 standards:
- ISO 28000:2007 “Specification for security management systems for the supply chain”
- ISO 28001:2007 “Security management systems for the supply chain – Best practices for implementing supply chain security – Assessments and plants – Requirements and guidance”
- ISO 28003:2007 “Security management systems for the supply chain – Requirements for bodies providing audit and certification of supply chain security management systems”
- ISO 28004:2007 “Security management systems for the supply chain – Guidelines for the implementation of ISO 28000”
KEY POINTSThe standard is applicable to companies of any size (from small to multinational) operating in the production , services , storage and transport sectors, at every level of the supply chain.
Possible goals are:
- establish, implement, maintain and improve a safety management system
- ensure compliance with the security management policy
- demonstrate such compliance to third parties
- request certification of your safety management system from an accredited certification body or
- complete a self-declaration of compliance with this International Standard
- It makes the organization's commitment to supply chain security management visible to customers and authorities
- It is an effective tool to keep the supply chain under control and, through the evidence of the critical control points, plan it in the best possible way
- Use the preventive approach to hazard management for supply chain control within a more complex management system, such as the Quality and Environment System
- It allows you to grow in competitiveness , credibility and visibility on the reference market
