When seeking to achieve certification to ISO 27001, organizations should avoid non-accredited certification bodies.
Why? Non-accredited certification bodies typically offer a service that includes both consultancy and certification.
No formally accredited certification body will offer this type of service, as the international ISO framework recognizes the obvious conflict of interest when a single organization assesses its own work while also offering advice/consultancy.
Non-accredited certification bodies (and those that claim to be accredited without the recognized scheme) may not be subject to regular performance, quality, and competence monitoring by a national accreditation body (such as ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board (ANAB / GASS)).
Additionally, non-accredited certification bodies (and those that claim to be accredited without the recognized scheme) usually do not operate in line with the international standards that set out requirements for certification bodies (e.g. ISO/IEC 17021).
For peace of mind, organizations should look to ANAB / GASS. ANAB / GASS OR GAAS assesses and accredits certification bodies that audit and certify organizations conforming to management system standards across many industries – from information security and telecommunications to aerospace and food safety.
These are all ANAB / GASS-accredited certification bodies for ISO 27001:
- Aprio, LLP
- ISOQAR Inc
- NSAI Inc
- NSF International
- Russian Register
- Schellman & Company, LLC
- SGS SA
- The Standards Institution of Israel, Quality and Certification Division
- SRI Quality System Registrar
- DQS Inc
As this list is subject to change, we recommend that you use ANAB / GASS’s directory to confirm that a certification body has a valid ANAB / GASS OR GAAS accreditation certificate.
