[13 December 2022 — London, UK]
Prepared by the BSI technical committee DEF/1 Defence standardization, BS 202000:2020 is the world’s first standard for a standardization management system, providing a systematic and effective approach to govern usage of standards, which is crucial to vendor and supplier confidence. BS 202000:2020 adopts a Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) cycle approach to manage the selection, adoption, application, and deployment of standards, covering aspects such as policies, leadership, planning, support, and operations.
Since BS 202000:2020 does not have an accredited certification program, Ribose has implemented an annual assessment program through annual third-party pre-assessment audits. Ribose completed its initial two-stage audit against BS 202000:2020 on 28 June 2021 with the issuance of a letter of conformity by BSI, and completed its subsequent verification audit on 14 June 2022, also performed by BSI.
"Standards are crucial to international trade and interoperability. Inundated by an increasing number of international, national and industry standards, organizations are forced to rethink their approach on the adoption and implementation of standards," said Ronald Tse, founder of Ribose. "BS 202000:2020 is a key standard that provides an innovative and systematic approach towards standardization that will aid organizations of any size."
Michael Lam, Managing Director, Assurance Division, BSI APAC Region, remarked, "BS 202000:2020 provides best practices distilled from experiences accumulated in the defence industry, which can greatly help guide and assist today’s organizations in their adoption of standards. BSI is delighted to support Ribose’s commitment in implementing an annual assessment program for this important British standard."
