ISO 28000:2007 SUPPLY CHAIN SECURITY MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS

What is ISO 28000?

 

ISO 28000 is an international standard which addresses the requirements of a Security Management Systems (SMS) for the supply chain. It specifies the aspects to help the organization to assess security threats and to manage them as they arise in their supply chain security management is related to other aspects of business management.  With ISO 28000, organizations can determine if appropriate security measures are in place and can protect their properties from various threats.

ISO 28000:2007 is a management system standard which has been developed specifically for logistics companies and organisations that manage supply chain operations. Published as a Publicly Available Specification by the International Standards Organisation in 2005, this was replaced in 2007 by the full standard, ISO 28000:2007.

ISO 28000:2007 is a management system specification for the protection of people, property, information and infrastructure; in companies and organisations participating in local, national and international supply chain operations.

ISO 28000:2007 is suitable for all sizes and types of organisations that are involved in the production of goods, manufacturing, services, storage or transportation at any stage of the products development or movement in the supply chain.

Supply chain security is an essential requirement for companies involved in the international supply chain, especially those having to comply with stronger security demands from Customs and/or their business partners.

For organisations working within, or relying on, the logistics industry, certification to the ISO 28000:2007 supply chain management standard provides a valuable framework. It will help minimise the risk of security incidents and so help provide problem-free 'just in time' delivery of goods and supplies.
