Update on accreditation as a certification body for ISO/IEC 27001 according to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17021-1

On 21 and 22 June 2021, the office assessment by the Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle (DAkkS) took place within the scope of the accreditation as a certification body. 

For this purpose, the Board of Directors and the management of AUDEG and the KBS (Konformitätsbewertungsstelle) were available to answer the questions of the 3 DAkkS experts for two days. Overall, the experts found the submitted and subsequently adapted documents and established processes to be valid. As expected, however, there are also things that need to be improved/changed and AUDEG will solve the tasks set for it in the following 12 months.

The construct of the cooperative is still new for DAkkS - but could be explained to full satisfaction. The approach of mapping the KBS activity completely virtually also fits in with the current zeitgeist and is endorsed.
