The supply chain is a system that involves a large number of sectors and where organizations are adversely affected by ruptures or security issues that may arise in the rings of this chain. Correct identification of the risks to be faced in the supply chain and the correct management of these risks are of great importance for each organization.
ISO 28001: 2007 The Supply Chain Security Management System is a management system standard published by ISO on the management of the identified risks.
This standard describes the requirements of the supply chain security management system and provides a management model for organizations that want to install and implement this system. But also by integrating easily with ISO 9001 Quality Management System, ISO 14001 Environmental Management System, ISO 22000 Food Safety Management System, ISO 27001 Information Security Management System and similar management systems, supply chain risk management.
The organizations operating in the manufacturing sector as well as the organizations operating in the service sector are always customers of another organization. This constitutes a supply chain in commercial life. In fact, ISO 9001 Quality Management System has defined the necessary standard and evaluation methods for relations with suppliers, International Standards Organization (ISO) has published ISO 2007 Supply Chain Security Management System standards in 28001, especially on the supply chain management system.
The main feature of ISO 9001 Quality Management System and ISO 28001 Supply Chain Security Management System standards is the presence of many common substances with each other. This feature allows both systems to be integrated with each other. However, the ISO 28001 Supply Chain Security Management System standard is a standard that can be established and implemented individually in an organization. In order to obtain ISO 28001 certification, the organization is not required to have ISO 9001 Quality Management System certification.
The ISO 28001 standard is a standard published by the International Standards Organization and the Turkish Accreditation Agency (TURKAK) has not accredited any certification bodies in this document. For this reason, the accredited certification bodies for other management systems from the Turkish Accreditation Agency can prepare the ISO 28001 Supply Chain Security Management System Certificate without accreditation to the organizations they deem appropriate. No ISO 28001 certificate with TURKAK logo.
Briefly, in various sectors, problems in the breakdown of any chain of supply chain or problems in the order negatively affect the organizations. In order to overcome these negativities, it is of great importance that the supply chain is properly established and managed correctly. From this point of view, every organization, from companies of all sizes to international global organizations, from service stores to factories, from companies at any stage of the supply chain to companies providing transportation services, can establish and obtain the Supply Chain Security Management System. Through this system, organizations determine their needs and establish a order.

Accordingly, the profitability and efficiency of the organization increases. The quality of the goods and services produced increases. The competitiveness of organizations rises and the market share expands. The quality of working conditions increases for employees. As a result, the quality of suppliers and customer satisfaction increase.
While preparing the Supply Chain Security Management System standard, management systems standards are taken as model. Therefore, organizations that have established and implemented risk-based management systems have no difficulty in implementing this standard.
Already in recent years, organizations have seen that if a supply chain is regulated, customer service levels will be better, excess inventories in the system could be reduced and unnecessary costs in the enterprise network could be removed and they started to give importance to the supply chain.
These organizations are aware that if the risks in the supply chain are correctly identified and managed effectively, they will gain a large profit in terms of business continuity. Especially in the times of financial crisis, the results of supplying the supplied product in a timely and accurate manner are very big. Determining the risks that create this situation and taking the necessary measures are important for the continuity of the companies. The Supply Chain Security Management System has been published in order to manage potential security risks and ensure continuity of supply in today's volatile environment.
