Supply Chain Security Management System defines requirements and designs management model in order for organizations who are willing to implement this system. It intends to manage risk efficiently by integrating management systems such as ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 22000, ISO 27001 etc with Supply Chain Security Management System.
ISO 28000:2007 is applicable to all sizes of organizations, from small to multinational, in manufacturing, service, storage or transportation at any stage of the production or supply chain that wishes to establish, implement, maintain and improve a security management system. ISO 28000 is the formal international security standard against which organizations may seek independent certification of their supply chain security management system. It specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining and improving a documented Supply Chain Security Management System (SCSMS), using a continual improvement approach. The ISO 28000 standard is formally known as "Specifications for Security Management Systems in the Supply Chain". ISO 28000:2007 is a management system standard which has been developed specifically for logistics companies and organisations that manage supply chain operations. For organisations working within, or relying on, the logistics industry, certification to the ISO 28000:2007 supply chain management standard provides a valuable framework. It will help minimise the risk of security incidents and so help provide problem-free 'just in time' delivery of goods and supplies.
