» Technical Bulletin – Imminent Publication of ISO 20000-1: 2018

05 July, 2018

Please be aware that ISO 20000-1: 2018 is expected to be published in September. UKAS is now finalising our approach to the transition.

There are a number of technical changes, along with the application of the Annex SL structure.

It is expected that a 2-year transition period will be allocated by IAF (to be confirmed) and UKAS is planning on this basis.

A detailed communication will be published shortly detailing the transition process; in the meantime, accredited Certification Bodies are urged to review the standard and start to pull together a gap analysis and implementation plan (these will be required as part of the transition process).

Should you require any clarification to the above please contact Garrett Byrne: the UKAS Technical Focus Person for SMS – garrett.byrne@ukas.com, or Kevin Belson: Technical Manager – kevin.belson@ukas.com
