FAQs on ISO 37001:2016

ISO DEVELOPS THE STANDARDS LIKE ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OH&S 18001, ISO 22000, ISO 27001, ISO 13485 AND VARIOUS OTHER STANDARDS TO BE FOLLOWED AND MANAGE THE SYSTEM OF THE ORGANIZATION IN A MORE EFFICIENT MANNER.

“THE PURPOSE OF THE ISO CERTIFICATE IS NOT FOR THE BEAUTIFICATION OF THE WALL OF THE OFFICE.”

Yes. An organization may invite an independent certification body to verify that it is in conformity to the standard. ISO 37001 is a requirements standard, making it capable of independent certification.

Generally, no. Like the decision to implement the Standard, pursuit of certification is a decision made by the organization. However, for some industries, or in procurement, certification may be a legal or contractual requirement.

No. The measures required by ISO 37001 are designed to be integrated with existing management processes and controls. ISO 37001 follows the common high-level structure for ISO management system standards.

When choosing a certification body, you should:
1. Evaluate several certification bodies.
2. Check if it is accredited. Accreditation is not compulsory, and non-accreditation does not necessarily mean it is not reputable, but it does provide independent confirmation of competence.
