Certification of Protocols against COVID-19

In light of the current epidemiological situation, AENOR has updated and intensified its guidelines in order to further strengthen its customers' capacity to respond to the COVID-19 crisis. Evidence of the adequate application of best practices in the management of coronavirus is key to transferring the necessary guarantees to workers, customers and consumers to generate confidence. In this regard, AENOR has strengthened its COVID-19 Protocol Certification scheme, taking into account the current epidemiological situation, together with the design of new supplementary solutions.

In this way, organisations that choose to undergo AENOR's audit will have the security of applying suitable protocols and they will also be able to demonstrate to customers, employees and the general public their commitment to preventing the spread of COVID-19.

ISO/PAS 45005 Certification: Safe working during the COVID-19 pandemic

The recently published standard ISO/PAS 45005 "Occupational Health and Safety management.General guidelines for safe working during the COVID-19 pandemic" endorses the hard work previously carried out to achieve the Protocols against COVID-19 certification, thus giving organisations a further opportunity to demonstrate their commitment to safety in the management of their activity, and now with the reinforcement of an international standard.

ISO/PAS 45005 gives further details and measures to be taken in sections already included in the COVID-19 Protocol certification, but extends its scope to new areas (including leadership, participation and consultancy, psychological health and well-being, inclusion, and commitment to improvement), and examines wide-ranging safety measures to be adopted by organisations in relation to the pandemic.

It is also a standard based on the Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) cycle, and its implementation and certification can be aligned with other management systems and will facilitate the coordination of resources and relevant efforts in the management of COVID-19.

Thus, ISO/PAS 45005 becomes the necessary complement to the current AENOR Certification of Protocols against COVID-19

This standard can be seamlessly integrated with other management systems, particularly with ISO 45001, given the direct relationship with Occupational Health and Safety management, and with ISO 31000 on Risk Management and with ISO 22301 on Business Continuity Management.

It is possible to conduct integrated audits based on both standards. 

Additionally, AENOR offers the possibility of carrying out laboratory analysis to verify the cleaning and disinfection of surfaces for both COVID-19 and other microorganisms, such as aerobic bacteria and Enterobacteriaceae.

Once the assessment process has been completed, if the measures adopted are in line with the established guidelines guide, the organisation will obtain:

  • Audit report on the Protocol of Measures adopted by the organisation against COVID-19
  • Certification of Protocols against COVID-19. COVID and/or for COVID-19 Occupational Health and Safety management in accordance with ISO/PAS 45005
  • Licence to use the AENOR Marks for Certification of Protocols against COVID-19 and/or COVID-19 Occupational Health and Safety management in accordance with ISO/PAS 45005
