The new BS EN 15713:2023 has been published. Here’s everything you need to know about the changes and how to transition from BS EN 15713:2009.
BS EN 15713 is the British version (BS) of the European standard (EN) for the secure destruction of confidential and sensitive material. An industry-specific standard, it outlines a robust framework covering every step of the process: collection, handling, transportation, storage, and destruction, to safeguard against data breaches and leaks.
The standard saw a significant update in September 2023, which was critical considering how data protection and privacy have changed over the past decade. The previous version, established in 2009, no longer met the evolving needs of the digital age.
The standard has seen an expansion, growing from 12 to 21 clauses. This reflects the increased sensitivity around data protection and regulatory requirements. Some key changes include:
We will conduct a GAP analysis to identify what work is needed to comply with BS EN 15713:2023. Following these recommendations, you can start the transition. During this stage, our team will support you with the process, providing you with resources such as templates. Your account manager will also be on hand to answer any of your questions, and once completed, you will be ready to certify to BS EN 15713:2023.
For existing ISO QSL clients, we will be in touch to start your transition to BS EN 15713:2023. Should you have any questions in the meantime, please contact your account manager on 0330 058 5551.
If you are certified to BS EN 15713:2009 with another provider, we can still support you with the process with our consultancy services. Request a quote via our website or call our team today on 0330 058 5551.

Originally designed to sit within the ISO 9001 Quality Management System, BS EN 15713’s extensive update allows for independent implementation. However, integration with ISO 9001 is still recommended to enhance the effectiveness of your management system. The 2023 update also brings closer alignment with ISO 27001 Information Security and ISO 22301 Business Continuity and still maintains its synergy with ISO 14001 Environmental Management. This makes integration with these additional standards much easier and unlocks a range of benefits for your business.
