Since 2007, the Europa Group have voluntarily signed up to the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) standards of 27001 Information Security Management Systems and ISO 9001 Quality Management Systems. Each year, the Group is subjected to an assessment to measure its internal procedures to strict regulations.
Last month, the Europa Group successfully underwent its annual ISO audit. The Group has been certified to the new ISO standards and also extended their scope in application across its business.
ISO 9001 is an international business standard that specifies an effective way for organisations to manage the quality of the services and products they supply. ISO 27001 is an information security standard to bring information security (threats, risks, vulnerabilities and impacts) under an organsised and manageable control.
The International Organisation for Standardisation, known as ISO, is an international standard-setting body founded in 1947. It is the World’s largest developer of voluntary, international standards. It facilitates World trade by providing common proprietary, industrial and commercial global standards between nations. There are currently 162 member countries.
This year the Europa Group upgraded its scheme documentation, including changes to their scope to meet the latest standards for ISO 27001 (ISO 27001:2013) and ISO 9001 (ISO 9001:2015). The extension to scope relates to Wills and Executor activities. Certification to these new standards and scope has now been issued to the Europa Group.
“The Europa Team is immensely proud to have maintained certification on not one but two of the latest ISO standards and extended their scope!” said Brett Dale Bridge, the Business Development Manager to the Europa Group.
The standards also serve to safeguard consumers and the end-users of products and services, ensuring that certified products and services conform to the minimum standards set internationally.
“The certifications give our clients and intermediaries additional confidence in our services, as our standards are internationally measured and quantifiable by an independent, global third-party organisation,” said Ms. Kyra Cabrera, Senior Company Administrator to the Group.
The Group’s clients can continue to look forward to another exciting year of excellent standards and service from the Europa Team.
