GeoPlace Sails Through ISO Audits
Printer Friendly versionPrinter Friendly


As part of its commitment to continually improving the quality and security of the data it works with, the GeoPlace management team is dedicated to maintaining the organisation's internationally recognised ISO standards; ISO27001 Information Security and ISO9001 Quality Management Standard. Both of these standards have been applied to the whole of GeoPlace's business, specifically the 'Provision to the public and private sectors of information management and consultancy services, relating to address location identification and street information'.

In December 2012 GeoPlace successfully passed its latest ISO27001 Information Security audit, performed by external auditor Lloyds Register Quality Assurance. This was the fourth six-monthly external audit for this standard since achieving certification in October 2010, an unbroken period of over two years.

In addition GeoPlace has also maintained its ISO9001 Quality Management Standard for over four years since achieving certification at the beginning of January 2009, and full recertification in January 2012. LRQA again failed to find any non-conformances or other issues in their sixth ISO9001 visit.

Richard Mason, Managing Director said "During the last two years, GeoPlace has experienced major business changes from the transition of Intelligent Addressing to GeoPlace, the development of the National Address Gazetteer and the move to new offices. This together with the ever increasing amount of data that GeoPlace handles is a record of which the company is understandably proud. Our partners can be assured that we have the robust business systems in place necessary to successfully deliver complex data solutions."

GeoPlace

GeoPlace is a public sector limited liability partnership between the Local Government Association and Ordnance Survey. GeoPlace’s role is to create and maintain the National Address Gazetteer and the National Street Gazetteer for England and Wales, providing definitive sources of publicly-owned spatial address and street data for Great Britain.
