Who are PECB?

ATP_logo_no bordersProfessional Evaluation and Certification Board (PECB),,  is a personnel certification body for various standards, including ISO 9001 (Quality), ISO 14001 (Environment), OHSAS 18001 (Health & Safety), ISO 20000 (IT Service), ISO 22000 (Food safety), ISO 22301 (Business continuity), ISO 26000 (Social Responsibility), ISO 27001 (Information security), ISO 27005 (Information security risk) and ISO 28000 (Supply Chain Security).

PECB is the only personnel certification body that is certified to ISO 9001 (ANAB) and ISO 27001 (UKAS). Established in 2005, PECB has earned an international reputation for integrity, value and best practice by providing this assurance through the evaluation and certification of professionals against rigorous, internationally recognized competence requirements. PECB’s mission is to provide its clients comprehensive examination and certification services that inspire trust and benefit society as a whole.

As opposed to other personnel certification bodies, and in accordance with the ISO/IEC 17024 standard, PECB does not certify training courses, only examinations.

When do courses start? What courses will be run?

At this stage courses are scheduled for July 2014, with the exact courses still to be finalised. That said the first round of courses will most likely be based around our current client requirements which include the development and auditing of ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 18001 management systems. More courses to come online in late 2014, watch this space!
