    ICW Chairman Lord Evans was delighted to present Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) with their certificate for achieving ISO 44001. The BSI certificate was presented to DEWA MD & CEO HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer. This is the first certification to be achieved under the ICW scheme to be awarded in the Middle East region, and we hope it will provide a beacon for collaborative working and further close association with DEWA.

    The ICW Awards provided us with the opportunity to present the first company to achieve recognition under the ICW Affliation to B2B Performance Management. As collaborative working becomes more mainstream and the adoption of the International Standard ISO 44001 increases, so for ICW it is important that organisations get the best possible advice and support to harness the benefits. The Consultant Affiliation Programme not only sets a standard for best practice it also provides an opprotunity for ICW to embrace specilist skills.

    Congratulations to B2B, John Doyle and his team - we look forward to working with you all.

    David Hawkins, ICW Chief Operating Officer

    ISO’s International Standard for Business Collaboration, ISO 44001, helps organisations get the most out of working together. A new guidance document provides further insight to help them take it to the next step.

    The benefits of collaboration in the business world are many, and include the generation of innovative ideas, reduced costs through efficiencies and sharing of resources and access to new services and technologies.

    ‘ISO 44001, Collaborative Business Relationship Management Systems – Requirements and Framework’, assists companies in establishing and improving collaborative relationships, both within and between organisations.

    Now organisations can take the guidance to another level with the recently published ‘ISO 44002, Collaborative Business Relationship Management Systems — Guidelines on the Implementation of ISO 44001’. It provides in-depth knowledge and understanding of the requirements in ISO 44001 to help organisations implement it most effectively.

    ISO 44002 provides specific guidance for establishing, developing and managing third-party relationships using the eight-stage life-cycle as detailed in ISO 44001. The information given in the new standard enables organisations to successfully integrate the ISO 44001 business collaboration framework into their existing management systems, processes and procedures, to optimsze the benefits of collaborating.

    ISO 44002 is now available for purchase from your national ISO member or the ISO Store.
