The ITAD Works Passes ADISA Spot Check with Distinction and Honours

World-recognised certification is upheld following a rigorous testing of processes and facilities


Cranleigh, UK, 12th May 2015 – Leading IT Asset Lifecycle and Disposal service provider The ITAD Works is proud to announce it has passed a spot check by the Asset Disposal & Information Security Alliance (ADISA), upholding its Distinction Certification Level with Honours.


Chairman of The ITAD Works, Robin Gue commented, “We are proud to have passed the spot check with flying colours and continue to be recognised as offering the highest levels of security, assurance and service to our clients. This is testament to the expertise and hard work of The ITAD Works team.”


The spot check involved ten devices being selected at random and forensically analysed in accordance with the ACPO forensic guidelines, to ensure The ITAD Work's procedures had completely removed any information from the former users. The tests subjects included hard drives, which were powered up and thoroughly tested for compliance.


As well as the physical testing of processed products, the ADISA spot check also scrutinised The ITAD Works' operations and logistics. The investigating team looked at the entire process, from collection of items to be processed, to the goods-in department at the company's facility, to processing and the finished products which are ready for disposal.  It also checked The ITAD Works' client engagement along with the documentation used to ensure all items had the necessary paperwork and approval.


Additionally, the ADISA testers checked the company’s premises for physical security, the process control, sanitisation and contamination measures. The spot check also looked at processes for dealing with any processing failures, secure erasure reports and downstream waste management (to ensure full WEEE compliance and safe disposal of hazardous materials).
