Information Security Standard (ISS)

The auDA Information Security Standard (ISS) for Accredited Registrars (2013-03) came into effect on 17 October 2013. To date, the following accredited registrars have achieved certification:

The ISS forms part of auDA’s Registrar Accreditation Criteria (2013-04) and compliance is mandatory for all auDA accredited registrars.

Whilst auDA is not a registrar, from time to time auDA is required to perform caretaker registrar services.  auDA has been independently audited and has been found to be ISS compliant.

The ISS was developed in consultation with registrars and other industry participants through the 2012 Industry Advisory Panel, and was approved by the auDA Board in February 2013.

Existing registrars at 17 October 2013 must achieve ISS compliance within 24 months of the commencement date.

New applicants for registrar accreditation must achieve ISS compliance as part of the provisional accreditation process.
