Upcoming Workshop on new ISO 18788 Management System for Private Security Operations

Join Radian Compliance and Human Analytics on Tuesday, November 3, 2015 in Hampton Roads, VA for the DoD – Procurement Technical Assistance Program training on the recently released international standard, ISO 18788 Management System for Private Security Operations. If you are a private security company working for the DoD, DoS, or a commercial entity, this new ISO standard is relevant to you. Supported by the DoD, the purpose of this new standard is to enable consistent provision of security services while maintaining the safety of clients and ensuring respect for human rights and national and international laws in circumstances where the rule of law has been weakened due to human or natural events. ISO 18788 builds on ANSI/ASIS PSC.1 Management System for Quality of Private Security Company Operations.

This 3 hour session runs from 1pm-4pm and presents an overview of ANSI/ASIS PCS.1 as well as ISO 18788. Learn the requirements of the standards. Gain an understanding of how to implement a risk management framework and a human rights impact analysis, both requirements of the standards. Advice will be shared on which standard to adopt and whether to comply of conform to that standard.

In addition to the ISO 18788 workshop, a morning workshop will cover the recently revised and released ISO 9001: 2015 Quality Management Systems. This standard is at the heart of most organizations that want to drive value and quality processes to its customers. The workshop will review the certification and implementation requirements of a quality management system, and will examine how ISO 9001:2015 can integrate with other ISO systems along with supply chain requirements, including those of the Federal Government. With the September 23rd release of the updated standard, this session will also review the changes from the 2008 version. This class is appropriate for those both new to and experienced with ISO 9001. Many PSCs that seek certification to ANSI/ASIS PSC.1 and ISO 18788 also gain ISO 9001 certification in the process.

The workshops cost $75, the proceeds of which go to George Mason University. To register for the workshops visit http://virginiaptap.org/calendar/   On the ‘Center’ Line select Hampton Roads for information and registration.
