This document, TickITplus Core Scheme Requirements is a guide to the requirements for a TickITplus assessment. Available to download or in hardcopy format (available for immediate dispatch worldwide) it will help you to become certified against the TickITplus scheme, bringing huge organizational benefits.
The TickITplus Core Scheme Requirements specifies the requirements for undertaking an accredited TickITplus assessment that meets the audit requirements set out in ISO17021 and follows the principles in ISO/IEC 15504-2. This document is identified as important in the TickITplus Base Process Libarary and is required reading for anyone that wants to properly understand how to approach TickITplus certification.
The TickIT plus scheme uses ISO 9001:2008 as the core requirement standard and, as such, formal certification to ISO 9001:2008 is provided as a minimum. Additional requirement and reference standards can be included to provide a wider certification scope if desired.
The TickITplus scheme can be used by organizations internally, in which case certification to ISO 9001:2008 is not applicable.
TickITplus provides five grades of certification. The lowest grade is Foundation, which is not capability assessed, then Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum, which are capability assessed.
This document is structured to follow the logical flow of certification activities, from the scope definition in Section 2 to post-assessment activities in Section 9. As many of the general activities can be dependent on the nature of the assessment being undertaken, Section 10 provides details on the allowable level of tailoring for each type of assessment.
