  • 4.8(45,409 Rating)

Course Overview

You may already be familiar with ISO 19600 guidelines for establishing, developing, implementing, evaluating, maintaining, and improving an effective and responsive compliance management system (CMS). Due to increased interest in ensuring organizations’ accountability and responsibility, this standard has been replaced by ISO 37301, a Type A management system standard against which organizations can formally assess and certify their CMS.

The ISO 37301 Transition training course enables you to obtain a detailed understanding of the differences between ISO 37301 and ISO 19600 by making clause-by-clause comparisons to showcase the changes, updates, and new requirements of ISO 37301. As such, you should be able to support an organization in transitioning their CMS from ISO 19600 recommendations to ISO 37301 requirements.

Once you become acquainted with the new concepts and requirements of ISO 37301 and attending the training course, you can sit for the exam, and if successfully passed, you can apply for the “PECB Certified ISO 37301 Transition” credential. This certificate proves that you have an up-to-date knowledge to successfully apply the ISO 37301 changes to an existing CMS.
