MCLEAN, Va. – (July 19, 2016) – DynCorp International (DI) has received certification by MSS Global, an accredited independent auditing firm, for our Private Security Company Management Systems.
“The PSC.1 Standard, established by the U.S. congress, requires any company providing security services to meet high standards for its management systems, ethics, and compliance with international human rights standards,” said Leonard Moss, DI’s Chief Security Officer and vice president of Security. “It’s a great certification for DI because it goes hand-in-hand with our company values.”
Certification also demonstrates compliance with International Organization for Standards (ISO) 18788 requirements for security operations management systems.
“Leonard and I led MSS Global in examining DI’s security and quality management systems as well as program performance,” said John Bennett, senior director of Performance Excellence. “MSS Global determined that DI meets the requirements of the Standard and has granted DI certification to the PSC.1 Standard.”
The PSC.1 Standard was developed by ASIS International and the American National Standards Institute to establish criteria for managing the quality of private security services and ensure respect for human rights and legal obligations, especially “in conditions where governance and the rule of law have been undermined by conflict or disaster,” – PSC Series of Standards.
“The auditors examined DI’s management systems, training, operational procedures and commitment to human rights,” added Leonard. “This certification is a big deal as it adds to our ISO Standard and improves our bid capabilities.”
As an ISO-certified company, PSC.1 certification adds to our integrated business management system, which includes certifications for Quality Management (ISO 9001 Series), Environmental Management (ISO 14000 Series), Safety Management (OHSAS 18000 Series), and Quality Management for Aviation, Space and Defense Organizations (AS9100 series).
We welcome the PSC.1 to our family of certifications as proof that compliance and governance values are embedded in the way we operate everywhere we work.
