Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, USA (10 July 2017) – DAkkS, the accreditation body for certification bodies in Germany, recently accredited TUV Rheinland to be an ISA Security Compliance Institute (ISCI) certification body. TUV Rheinland is now authorized to issue certificates of conformance for the IEC 62443 based ISASecure® control systems cybersecurity certification scheme.
“We are pleased to announce the addition of TUV Rheinland as a new ISASecure certification body” stated Andre Ristaino, ISCI Managing Director, “With global recognition for excellence and over 100 years of history in standards and certifications, TUV Rheinland’s reputation is second to none. The addition of TUV Rheinland adds credibility to the ISASecure control system certification program and expands global coverage.”
“We are excited to be part of the ISA Secure Conformity Assessment (CA) scheme as it further supports the work we are doing with our clients to ensure their systems are both safe and secure,” says Heinz Gall\, Head of Certification Body for Functional Safety and Cyber Security at TÜV Rheinland.
The ISASecure CA scheme is a standards-based certification scheme that assesses the cybersecurity of control system products and systems to the IEC 62443 international standards governing control systems cybersecurity.
All conformity assessment bodies (CB) for the ISCI ISASecure® control systems conformity assessment scheme must meet ISO/IEC 17065 and ISO/IEC 17025 requirements in addition to the ISASecure requirements for technical readiness.
The ISASecure CB’s are independently assessed by ISO/IEC 17011 (EN 45011) accreditation bodies (AB) for initial accreditation and are audited annually by the AB to ensure that the CB maintains qualifications for participation in the ISASecure CA scheme.
