11 May, 2017

This technical bulletin is relevant to all Certification Bodies accredited to ISO/IEC 17021-1 for Information Security Management Systems in accordance with ISO/IEC 27001.

You may be aware that a new version of the ISMS standard has been published – BS EN ISO/IEC 27001: 2017.

Please be aware that the ISO version of the standard is not affected and the changes do not introduce any new requirements. The change has been introduced to indicate approval by CEN/CENELEC for the EN designation. The updated BS does however incorporate two previously issued Corrigenda/Amendments in Clause 6.1.3 and Annex A clause 8.1.

As UKAS accredits to the ISO standard there are no modifications affecting your accreditation status and therefore no additional transition activities are introduced by this revision.

For further information please contact the UKAS Technical Focus Person for ISMS: Alastair Hunter (alastair.hunter@ukas.com); or the UKAS Technical Manager: Kevin Belson (kevin.belson@ukas.com)
