As many of our readers already know, the Ps-Prep journey started way back in 2007 when then President Bush signed the Recommendations from the 9/11 Commission into law. Since then there have been many steps and stops along the way and we are sure that a few more are most certainly left to come.
The standards have been selected, and ANAB has issued requirements and now invites certification bodies to submit applications for accreditation to become a Registrar for one or more of the selected standards announced for the Voluntary Private Sector Preparedness Certification (PS-Prep) program.
To read the full announcement, please CLICK HERE.
Once applications are received, Lead Auditors will need to be trained to the standards and ANAB will need to witness the 1st audit that is conducted by each certifying body.
Current information on ANAB’s PS-Prep program, including the Accreditation Rule that specifies requirements, is available on this site.
It is also anticipated that a publicly accessible list of organizations with accredited PS-Prep certification will be maintained on the site when certification bodies become accredited and begin issuing certificates.
Please pass this information along to those business continuity, risk management and PS-Prep team leaders in your organization.
