ISO 18788 certification (also known as “registration”) is a third-party audit performed by a certification body such as PECB which upon verification that an organization is in compliance with the requirements of ISO 18788, will issue an ISO 18788 certificate. This certification is then maintained through regularly scheduled annual surveillance audits by the registrar, with re-certification of the Private Security Operations Management Systems performed on a triennial basis.
