Revised ISO 27001 now accepted in Europe too

There is now a European version of the revised standard for information security management systems ISO/IEC 27001 that was updated last year. This European version is identical to the global version, with the addition of a European preface.

European standards apply across all EU countries and can’t conflict. Therefore, procedures have been established to adopt global standards at European level. In this case, the publication of the European version occurred one year after the publication of the global version. As a result, the global and European standards have different year indications.

Which version does Kiwa issue?

Kiwa obtained accreditation for ISO 27001:2022 on 1 February 2023 and this will be stated on the certificate upon successful completion of the ISO 27001:2022 (transition) audit. The existence of a European version of the standard (ISO 27001:2023) does not affect existing or future certifications according to ISO 27001:2022.
