TAMPA, FL— August 25, 2016 – Schellman & Company, LLC (Schellman), a leading provider of compliance services, has been awarded accreditation by the ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board (ANAB) for ISO/IEC 20000-1 certification services. The new accreditation adds to the existing ISO 9001 accreditation Schellman received from ANAB in December, as well as the ISO/IEC 27001 accreditation Schellman received from the ANAB ANAB in 2011 and from the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) in 2015.
This recent achievement builds upon Schellman’s deep ISO certification services expertise, making it the only firm in the world that can offer a comprehensive suite of SOC, ISO, CSA STAR, HITRUST, FedRAMP, PCI, and penetration testing.
ANAB is the premier national accreditation body within the United States and assesses the competence of organizations that provide certification, testing, inspection, and calibration services. An organization accredited by ANAB can demonstrate competence, impartiality, and reliability in its ability to deliver its certification services. Accreditation ensures confidence that the ISO certification services provided by Schellman adhere to specific and audited requirements.
The accreditation process included an in-depth management system and framework review, an on-site office visit to ensure conformance to the related ISO standards, as well as a formal witness assessment to validate the professional service delivery of ISO/IEC 20000-1 certification services.
Schellman’s framework and suite of complementary services allows each assessment to be tailored to its specific compliance requirement and to leverage the controls of a client’s current compliance initiatives. It can also combine other client-specific requirements, allowing Schellman to perform testing once and deliver multiple comprehensive reports for several examinations and assessments.
“Achieving accreditation to provide ISO/IEC 20000-1 certification services is an accomplishment for Schellman and another way for us to meet the compliance needs and requirements of our clients,” said Ryan Mackie, Schellman’s ISO Certification Services practice lead. “We see the ISO/IEC 20000-1 certification as a valuable way an organization can demonstrate its service management processes are operating effectively and provide trust to their customers that in conforming to this standard, their service delivery operations are mature and optimal. Schellman is excited to add ISO/IEC 20000-1 to our suite of services and is looking forward to continuing our expansion of ISO certification services.”
