ISO 20000-1 certification

ISO 20000-1 is developing into the most important  standard for IT service management. It has become important for companies to meet this standard, and many will look for ISO 20000-1 accreditation among suppliers and partners.
ISO 20000-1 consists of two parts:

  • ISO 20000-1 defines the requirements for an organisation to deliver services of an acceptable quality. The scope of ISO 20000-1 includes requirements for a management system; planning and implementing service management; planning and implementing new or changed services; service delivery process; relationship processes; resolution processes; control processes and release processes.
  • BS 15000-2 is the code of practice. It describes the best practices for service management processes within the scope of ISO 20000-1. The code of practice will be useful to organisations that are preparing to be audited against ISO 15000-1 or planning service improvements.
