ISO 27701 accreditationHooray, Brand Compliance has achieved ISO 27701 accreditation!

We are pleased to add ISO 27701, to be able to serve you even better.

What does accreditation actually mean?

In the Netherlands, the Accreditation Council (RvA) is the national accreditation body. The work of the RvA consists of expert, impartial and independent supervision of certifying bodies, such as Brand Compliance.

The RvA determines whether a certifying body meets the requirements. In that case, the institution receives so-called accreditation. The RvA then continues to monitor the institution periodically. Brand Compliance may now issue ISO 27701 certificates under accreditation. This shows you that you have a valuable certificate in your hands.

About ISO 27701

ISO 27701 provides requirements and provides guidance for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continuously improving a Privacy Information Management System (PIMS). As a so-called add-on to an Information Security Management System (ISMS), the assessment of these requirements is only possible in conjunction with the requirements of ISO 27001 and guidelines of ISO 27002.

ISO 27701 contains a clear link between an ISMS and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). By complying with this standard, you not only guarantee the security of your own information, but you also demonstrate that you actively protect the privacy of others.
