Inspiring trust for a more resilient world.

The latest version which is Version 6 - will have a 12-month transition window to allow organizations to prepare for the new Version and certification bodies for implementation and gaining accreditation. The first audits to Version 6 will commence from 01 April 2024 onwards, and all organizations must complete the V6 upgrade audit before 31 March 2025.

In this live webinar, our thought leaders will be sharing insights and discuss the following topics:
