Boxborough, MA: Intertek, a leading Total Quality Assurance provider to industries worldwide, is proud to announce the addition of a new solution to its innovative Information Security and Technology Assurance services. Intertek Business Assurance will now offer auditing and certification services to the ISO/IEC 42001:2023 Artificial Intelligence Management System (AIMS) standard, enhancing ethical and responsible AI practices within organisations.

Recognising the need for responsible management, the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) jointly released the ISO/IEC 42001 standard for Artificial Intelligence Management Systems in December 2023.

Pioneering as the world's first AI standard, ISO/IEC 42001 outlines requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining, and continually improving an AIMS within an organisation. This framework is tailored for entities involved in delivering or utilising AI-based products or services, ensuring the responsible development and application of AI systems.

The new standard builds on Intertek’s global Total Sustainability Assurance (TSA) programme, providing its clients with an enhanced solution that will allow them to use AI in ways which are safer and more secure. It will enable them to better unlock the significant growth opportunities presented by a fast-developing technology while fulfilling their corporate social responsibilities across all aspects of their sustainability strategies, activities and operations.

"We are pleased to extend our services in this ground-breaking standard,” stated Calin Moldovean, President, Intertek Business Assurance, Food Services, and Assuris. "By offering certification services for AIMS, we enable organisations to proactively address the unique challenges associated with AI implementation, fostering trust and credibility among customers, partners, and regulators."

"Intertek's commitment to advancing ethical and responsible AI practices within organisations is exemplified through our latest service expansion,” stated Sofia Liebon, Global Program Manager, Intertek IT & Data Security. "By partnering with Intertek, organisations can not only achieve certification but also demonstrate their dedication to sustainability and responsible business practices in the rapidly evolving digital landscape.”

Intertek’s bespoke solutions extend beyond standard audits, emphasising capacity building and continuous improvement in today’s fast-paced technological landscape. The company leverages its rich history in management systems audits and certification to proactively address information security and cybersecurity risks with confidence.
