How to become a Certification Body

ISASecure Certification Bodies (CBs) are independently accredited by ISO/IEC 17011 Accreditation Bodies (ABs) to the ISO/IEC 17065 international standard for CBs and the ISO/IEC 17025 international standard for CBs.

The current list of ISO/IEC 17011 ABs who process lab accreditations for ISASecure are listed below. Applicants may request to be processed by an ISO/IEC 17011 AB not listed below. ISASecure will establish the proper agreement with the requested AB as needed.

CB Application Steps

  • 1

    Contact the ISASecure Managing Director and Indicate Your Interest in Becoming an ISASecure CB

    The managing director will schedule a teleconference to provide details about the accreditation process and direct you to the most appropriate ISO/IEC 17011 AB for processing your accreditation.

    Request the Application to Become a CB

    The CB should review the accreditation requirements for the ISASecure certification program for which you are interested in applying. If, after reviewing the accreditation requirements, you believe your organization can meet the requirements, complete the ISASecure-202 application and submit it to the ISASecure Managing Director. The ISASecure-202 application is a combined application and contract, including ISASecure fees for processing the application. The application must be signed by an authorized officer in your company.

    Contact an Accreditation Body

    The CB should contact one of the ISO/IEC 17011 AB’s listed below to plan and schedule the accreditation reviews. Each AB has their own fee schedule for the accreditation services.  The ISASecure managing director can help you select which AB to use for your accreditation assessment and make introductions if desired.

    The AB Performs the Accreditation Assessment for the CB Applicant

    Upon completion of the review by the AB, the CB will receive formal accreditation when all non-conformances have been corrected. Sometimes the formal accreditation certificate might not be issued for 6-12 months after the accreditation assessment activity has been completed because the AB’s accreditation committee only meets once or twice per year. ISASecure has a policy and a process for granting provisional accreditation prior to issuance of the formal accreditation by the AB.

Scope of Conformance

CBs should identify the scope of conformance you desire to adopt. Accreditation requirements for each of the three ISASecure certifications (scope of conformance) are described here:

  1. CSA certification - CSA-200 Certification Body Operations and Accreditation
  2. ICSA certification - ICSA-200 Certification Body Operations and Accreditation
  3. SSA certification - SSA-200 Certification Body operations and accreditation
  4. SDLA certification - SDLA-200 Certification Body operations and accreditation

Who to Contact

Contact ISASecure first to start the CB application process.
