EAS Policy on Transition
EAS Policy on Transition to ISO 27001:2022
ISO 27001:2022 Information Security Management System is published by ISO (International Organization for standardization).
As per the IAF (International Accreditation Forum) and JAS-ANZ (Joint Accreditation of Australia and New Zealand), the transition time for the update is before November 2025. All existing certified clients of EAS can migrate to the ISO 27001:2022 at any time during this period.
EAS will continue to issue certifications during the transition period for ISO 27001:2013 for which the validity date shall not be later than the end of the November 2025. However, organizations are recommended to change over to the latest version at least 6 months prior to the validity date November 2025. If any certifications to ISO 27001:2013 will be removed from EAS and the JAS-ANZ register at the end of the transition period.
However, the exception will be if any government or regulatory authority provides advice to JAS-ANZ that it continues to solely require organizations to hold ISO 27001:2013 certifications. In such case, the expiry date of such certificates may be issued in accordance with the routine three-year certification cycle.
Organizations applying for fresh ISMS certification can apply directly for the latest version viz ISO 27001:2022
Existing certified clients of EAS need to inform EAS on their decision to continue the existing version or to migrate to the latest version. New application is available here
