    Guideline Conformance Process:

    What is ISO 18788:2015?

    Through the Plan-Do-Check-Act Standard provides a framework for adequate business and risk management capacity to meet the professional requirements of clients and other stakeholders. Furthermore, the standard provides a means for the organisation to demonstrate assessment and management of the impact of their activities on local communities; accountability to law and respect for human rights and consistency with voluntary commitments to which the organisation subscribes.

    Why does an Organisation need ISO 18788:2015?

    The standard specifically applies to any organisation that provides security operations in circumstances where there is undermined rule of law due to human or natural caused events.

    Organisations that conduct security operations or similar activities need to adopt and implement the standard in order to ensure that human rights and fundamental freedoms are adhered to while safeguarding lives and property. The standard enables such organisations to ensure that untoward, illegal, and excessive acts are prevented. This means that organisations engaging in security operations manage the utilisation of tactics, techniques, procedures, and equipment, including weapons, in such a way as to achieve both operational and risk management objectives.

    Summarised, the standard is recommended for any organisation that:

    • Conducts or contracts security operations or similar activities.
    • Establishes, implements, maintains, and improves a Security Operations Management System (SOMS).
    • Assesses its conformity with its security operations management policy.
    • Demonstrates its ability to consistently provide services that meet its client’s needs and conform to the applicable laws and human rights requirements.
