BS 10012 Certification

Are you being required to have BS 10012 Certification? Would you like assurance that your organisation has effective data protection controls in place? If so, Teamwork IMS consultants can help.


About BS 10012

The BS 10012 Standard is a recognised British Standard to help organisations manage their data protection controls. BS 10012 can be applied to companies of all sizes in the private sector, but also to universities, charities, and public sector organisations. Achieving UKAS-accredited certification to BS 10012 provides independent assurance to your existing and potential customers and other interested parties that you have appropriate controls in place to ensure the protection of personal information. It can also give you that vital edge over your competitors.


BS 10012 Consultancy

Teamwork consultants will review your organisation’s current personal information management processes against the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the BS 10012 Standard and work with you to develop a plan and implement the necessary controls to achieve compliance with BS 10012 and support compliance with the GDPR. If required, our consultants will then assist you to ultimately achieve UKAS-accredited BS 10012 certification.

Are you considering achieving combined certifications for BS 10012 alongside other Standards such as ISO 27001 for example? Do you already have certification to other ISO Standards and want to integrate BS 10012 requirements with them?
