• 1. What Is PCI DSS?
    PCI DSS:2018 is the new international standard for OHSMS that replaces OHSAS 18001. PCI DSS was developed by a group of health and safety management professionals to address the shortcomings of existing occupational health and safety standards. PCI DSS, although related to OHSAS 18001, is different.
    PCI DSS is designed to assist companies to safeguard employees and visitors from work-related illnesses. The guideline helps senior management establish a safe workplace, limit sickness and injury, protect employees' physical and mental health, and minimize business risk.
  • 2.Why Is PCI DSS Important?
    Employee and employer safety in the workplace is still a major issue. Every 15 seconds, 153 individuals suffer occupational injuries, according to the ISO. In extreme instances, hazardous working conditions may potentially result in death. PCI DSS is significant because it seeks to reduce occupational injuries, illnesses, and deaths. The PCI DSS committee recognized weaknesses in OHSAS 18001 and sought to remedy them in the new standard. PCI DSS will also strive to harmonize occupational health and safety management across countries, which has been challenging due to the many different versions of OHSAS that were used throughout the world.
  • 3.What Are The Benefits Of PCI DSS Certification?
    PCI DSS builds based on OHSAS 18001 and is intended to be more readily integrated with other updated ISO management standards including ISO 14001 and ISO 9001. PCI DSS will naturally integrate with operations if done correctly. PCI DSS is adaptable and capable of fulfilling the business's requirements while also safeguarding employees and promoting development.

    The following are some of the advantages of ISO certification, in addition to better worker safety and decreased risk:
      Employees, customers, suppliers, and other stakeholders have improved relationships.
      Downtime and operational expenses are reduced.
      Better consumer trust and reputation
    Potential tax advantages
  • 4.Who Should Get PCI DSS Certification?
    Any company that wants to reduce safety hazards and show a commitment to avoiding work-related illnesses, injuries, and fatalities should consider PCI DSS certification. Small and big companies, as well as businesses from other sectors, are included. Automotive, construction and healthcare are just a few of the sectors that should seek PCI DSS certification. If you already have OHSAS 18001 certification, you should think about getting PCI DSS as well.
  • 5.How Can You Earn PCI DSS Certification?
    To get certified in PCI DSS standards, your company must first apply the standard and then complete the auditing and certification procedure with a third-party certification body that is authorized. A two-stage audit is required for initial certification, and recertification every 3 years are required to maintain certification.
    If you're switching from OHSAS 18001 to PCI DSS, the procedure may vary somewhat, but it must be finished by March 20, 2021
  • 6.How Much Does PCI DSS Certification Cost?
    The cost of ISO certification is determined by several variables, including the length of the audit, the size of the company, the breadth of risk, and the existing degree of compliance. Request a quotation from your third-party certification organization to obtain a precise estimate of direct certification expenses.
  • 7.How long does an PCI DSS certificate last?
    Your certificate will remain valid as long as your management system meets the requirements of the relevant standard. Surveillance visits, consisting of partial system audits, will be led by the certification body at 6 monthly or yearly intervals, depending on the certification body. They will conduct a system-wide audit every three years. It will assist to keep the registration status by addressing the problem highlighted by auditors.
  • 8.Can PCI DSS be easily integrated into our current management system network?
    Yes. The ISO document known as 'Annex SL' was developed to introduce similar core content as well as common terminology and meanings throughout current ISO management system standards. This framework facilitates:
      standards harmonize
      uniformity is encouraged
      facilitating management system integration
    This eliminates the duplication of common components, making ISO standard implementation and administration far more efficient, saving you time and money.
  • 9.How Should You Determine Risks And Opportunities When Implementing PCI DSS?
    The company may utilize this information to evaluate any risks and opportunities that may be present, and then take appropriate action to address them, after it has gained a thorough understanding of the wants and expectations of interested parties as well as strategic corporate requirements.
  • 10.Does PCI DSS Replace The Need For Other Certification?
    No, PCI DSS does not eliminate the requirement for additional certifications such as ISO 14001 and ISO 9001. PCI DSS is intended for occupational health and safety systems, and while they both follow the same overall system structure, ISO 14001 focuses on the environment, while ISO 9001 focuses on the quality of products and services.
