Verifile on track to secure fourth ISO accreditation

Verifile has once again proven its relentless commitment to achieving and attaining the highest industry standards, bypassing the first round of audits for ISO 22301: Business Continuity Management Systems.

We also passed and were re-certified for Information Security (ISO 27001), Quality Management (ISO 9001), and Environmental Management (ISO 14001), which we have held since 2013.

Visiting late last month ISO auditors looked at our business continuity procedures and disaster recovery to ascertain how we’d continue to operate should an unexpected incident impact our location, communications systems, or staff.

ISO 22301 will be a new accreditation for us and passing this 1st stage audit means we can now progress to the 2nd stage in December.

All being well, we’ll soon be able to add this latest ISO accreditation to our already impressive list of industry accreditations and certifications.

Later this month we’ll also face our usual external audit by the National Security Inspectorate (NSI) for NSI Gold (BS7858).

The NSI certification scheme, of which Verifile holds its Gold level, looks at a screening company’s compliance with industry standards including BS7858 in screening employees working in a secure environment. We have held this certification since January 2018.

Verifile’s Business Support Manager, Leanne Carmedy, said: “There is no legal requirement for us to hold these accreditations.

"But, achieving these UKAS accredited and internationally recognised standards proves our commitment to data security and quality of the highest level.”

Leanne also commented on the culture of excellence developed at Verifile: “It also encourages us to continuously improve and provide services that go above and beyond what is required.

"From top-level management to operational staff, everyone at Verifile has worked hard and contributed to making sure we remain on track to attain new certifications as well as retain those that we have already achieved.”
