IT Asset Recovery Certification 7.0 and 8.0

The ADISA IT Asset Recovery Certification is a scheme focused on the business process of IT asset recovery and data sanitisation.

Coming in early 2022, this certification is for companies who are releasing IT infrastructure – either sanitising the media themselves, OR are engaging with data processors to perform sanitisation services.

This certification helps business comply with UK GDPR whilst promoting re-use of assets through risk management which enables them to not only comply with law, but also to support sustainability initiatives.


Coming in mid-2022. This certification program offers data controllers the ability to engage with data processors in a fully UK and EU GDPR compliant way.

Incorporating all aspects of legal governance, this Standard also includes assistance in managing complex downstreams where sub-processors are being used.
