Type of Declaration

For Self-Assessment, a CISP must complete a self-assessment of its service against the Code Requirements and present to the CISPE Secretariat:
• its Declaration of Adherence; and
• a completed Compliance Checklist as set out at Annex B of the Code, and any supporting information.¨

CISPs that follow the Self-Assessment process shall be entitled to have the self-assessed service into the CISPE Public Register as “Candidate to the Code”, for a maximum period of 12 months following the date of incorporation of the Declaration of Adherence into the CISPE Public Register.

For Controlled Adherence, a CISP must first submit the relevant service for Monitoring Body assessment and verification, and present to the Secretariat:
• its Declaration of Adherence;
• a completed Compliance Checklist as set out at Annex B of the Code, and any supporting information; and
• written confirmation from its Monitoring Body that the CISP service adheres to the Code.

Your choice will determine which Compliance Mark the CISP is eligible to use for the Service(s). In each case the supporting evidence must include a completed Compliance Checklist and demonstrate compliance by reference to the Compliance Checklist.

Compliance Checklist

This Compliance Checklist sets out the requirements that a CISP shall meet in order to comply with the Code. It also provides suggested guidance to CISPs on how compliance with the Code Requirements can be achieved and technical and organisational security practices of Annex A can be implemented.

For clarity, the CISP’s obligation is to comply with the Code Requirements: the columns below setting out expected controls to be applied, and questions for the CISP, are to provide examples for how a CISP could comply and how their compliance could be assessed, but do not replace or change the relevant Code Requirement.

The Compliance Checklist is also intended to ensure a consistent verification approach for all Monitoring Bodies by providing them with (i) the requirements with which compliance with the Code will have to be verified and (ii) the questions/materials or equivalent that should be used to perform an assessment of Code compliance. The Compliance Checklist is not intended to replace or alter the Service Contract between a CISP and a customer.

For your convenience, the Compliance Checklist (“Annex B”) can be downloaded here, as an Excel document.

Please attach the Compliance Checklist and copies of any supporting documentation provided in respect of the Auditable Code Requirements.

Please indicate if supporting documents only apply to specific Services. If you are relying on different supporting documents for different services, you may complete the Compliance Checklist separately for each Service.

Please upload the completed checklist or a .zip file containing it and any supporting documents.
