BSI seeks public comments on BS ISO 37500:2013 Guidance on outsourcing

BSI is conducting a public consultation to seek views on BS ISO 37500:2013, the first international standard for outsourcing.

'BS ISO 37500:2013 Guidance on outsourcing' has been developed by outsourcing experts globally and is intended to provide recognized guidelines for an outsourcing project.

BS ISO 37500 captures the main concepts and terms, phases, processes and governance aspects of outsourcing, independent of size or sector, and for each phase gives information for the client side as well as the provider side. It includes detailed guidance on assessment and management of outsourcing risks, including two risk management checklists on:

  • Outsourcing risk assessment
  • Risks per outsourcing life cycle phase.

The commenting period closes on 31st October 2013.
