An ISO/IEC 20000 certification audit will help you to demonstrate the quality and consistency of your services by using a service management system.
ISO/IEC 20000 is a globally recognized standard that provides the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving a service management system (SMS). An SMS that meets ISO/IEC 20000 requirements can enable you to improve planning, design, transition and delivery of services.
Certification to ISO/IEC 20000 can help you to assure customers of the quality of your services and demonstrate to organizations that your business and supply chain provide a consistent approach to the service life cycle. It will also support your ability to monitor, measure and review your SMS and services.
Additionally, certification can help you to perform conformity assessments against ISO/IEC 20000’s requirements and enable you to support service management training providers.
What is the ISO/IEC 20000 certification process?
There are seven steps to the process:
- Application and quote
- Competence analysis – identify gaps in skills and competence at the outset
- Gap assessment – identify any weaknesses before the formal audit
- Stage 1 audit – confirmation that implementation is on track
- Stage 2 audit – confirmation that implementation is complete
- Certification – share your success
- Ongoing improvement – regular surveillance visits
Aligning with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
ISO/IEC 20000 contributes to UN Sustainable Development Goal nine.
