2017 changes to ISO 27001
A European version of ISO 27001 was published in 2017. It is not an international (ISO) standard. UKAS only accredits certification bodies (such as us) against the original 2013 international version. Consequently, certification bodies can only provide accredited certification against ISO/IEC 27001:2017 (the European version is called BS EN ISO/IEC 27001:2017).
The changes do not introduce any new requirements. They merely reflect European Approval of the international version and incorporate previously released corrections to the 2013 standard.
