The following questions were presented:
BSI cover a whole range of 7799/17799 activities. What do you see as your major roles? Are there any potential conflicts of interest?
In relation to BS 7799 activities, BSI British Standards developed the standards and was responsible for recommending and supporting their adoption as international standards. BSI Business Information sells the standards and BSI Management Systems offers registration to BS 7799-2:2002 (ISO/IEC 27001 from November 2005) and training.
Procedures are in place regulating the relationship between the National Standards Body, BSI British Standards, and other parts of the Group to ensure that no potential conflicts of interest can arise. This is in accordance with the terms of BSIís Royal Charter and Bye Laws, our Memorandum of Understanding with the UK Government and our obligations under competition law.
