Standard 7.0 will be withdrawn 30th of June, 2022
Standard 7.0 is being withdrawn on the 30.06.2022 meaning that any existing member that doesn’t have an accepted Statement of Compliance by that date will unfortunately have their ADISA certification withdrawn meaning they will have their website presence removed and will have to remove all reference to being ADISA certified from their marketing materials.
With ADISA certification becoming mandatory in most newly released tenders its really important that current members have submitted their S0C into their auditor as soon as possible.
The ADISA audit team is extremely busy with carrying out the process of transitioning the current membership over to 8.0 and are pleased to have carried out 3 full audits against 8.0 to date as well as onboarding 12 new applicants. The team have 15 more dates “pencilled” in and have their final UKAS witnessed audit next week meaning we are hopefully on track to gain UKAS accreditation by mid July.
Once that is hopefully achieved, we will be able to release the awards for the companies who have been audited against 8.0 meaning they will be able to say that they are the first to hold certification to the ICO approved and UKAS accredited 8.0.
