  • commit to a process of continuous improvement in their environmental performance.

In mid-2017 and as a result of potential customer requirements, ACB decided to implement the requirements of the ISO/IEC 27001 standard, with a view to obtaining certification during 2018.  Following positive assessment audits conducted by BSI during 2018 – pre-certification in February, Stage 1 in June, and an in-depth Stage 2 in September – ACB successfully achieved certification to ISO 27001 in November 2018.

ISO 27001 is an internationally recognised best practice framework that helps companies certified to the standard identify information security risks and put in place security measures that are right for the business, so that they can manage or reduce risks to their information.

By achieving certification to the standard, ACB can demonstrate that its management system meets international best practice and show customers, suppliers, and the market place that our organisation can handle information securely.
