archivsuisse holds various certifications in the areas of quality management, data protection and information security. The two archivsuisse locations attach great importance to quality and security requirements. The obtained certifications express this. The archivsuisse processes are continuously reviewed and adapted regarding aspects of data and information security. The staff is regularly trained in these matters.

Independently of each other, both company locations are audited annually by the Swiss Association for Quality and Management Systems (SQS).

ISO 9001 quality management system

Both the Berne and Zurich sites have a quality management system that complies with ISO 9001:2015. They keep their various stakeholders in mind. They review the market environment and carefully weigh opportunities and risks related to their business activities. The business processes are continuously adapted regarding the opportunities and risks.

Data protection and data security VDSZ:2014

The Bern site has successfully completed the VDSZ:2014 certification. It is based on the Swiss Data Protection Act and the Ordinance of the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner. Its aim is to optimally guarantee the protection of personal data and information security. archivsuisse AG is one of the few companies in Switzerland to have acquired a data protection quality mark with the entire company. archivsuisse is thus exempt from the obligation to report personal data collections.

Data protection management system GoodPriv@cy:2018

Both the Berne and Zurich locations have the GoodPriv@cy data protection seal of approval. They operate a functioning data protection management system. They attach the highest importance to the secure handling of personal data and the guarantee of information security.

FINMA compliance

Archivsuisse is audited annually at its Zurich location for compliance with FINMA-Circulars 08/07 and 18/3 (Outsourcing Banks). In addition, audited staff with many years of service with the company are employed (impeccable reputation) and all employees have signed a confidentiality declaration in accordance with Art. 47 of the Banking Act. Archivsuisse can therefore offer FINMA-subordinated companies the process security required by FINMA to implement archiving processes.
