In response to the rise of AI and the challenges it creates, the ISO and IEC have created the ISO/IEC 42001 standard. It provides a certifiable AI management system (AIMS) framework in which AI systems can be developed and deployed as part of an AI assurance ecosystem.

The global standard specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving an AIMS. The goal is to help organizations and society benefit the most from AI while reassuring stakeholders that systems are being developed and used responsibly.

What are the benefits of ISO/IEC 42001 certification?

ISO/IEC 42001 certification follows successful completion of an audit and enables you to:

  • Implement AI safely, with evidence of responsibility and accountability
  • Consider security, safety, fairness, transparency and data and AI system quality throughout the life cycle
  • Show that introducing AI is a strategic decision with clear objectives
  • Indicate strong governance concerning AI
  • Strike a balance between governance and innovation
  • Ensure that AI is used responsibly, especially concerning its continuous learning
  • Ensure that all relevant safeguards are in place
  • Combine key frameworks with experience to implement crucial processes like risk, life cycle and data quality management

Aligning with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

ISO/IEC 42001 contributes to UN Sustainable Development Goals 5, 7, 8, 9, 10, 12 and 14.

How can SGS help?

To implement an AIMS, you will need a solid understanding of ISO/IEC 42001's requirements. We offer training to provide the required knowledge.

Once the system is in place, we can provide a gap assessment. After the successful completion of an audit, we will issue your certificate, confirming the effective implementation of the standard's requirements.
