Harlow International subsidiaries first to win UKAS accreditation


Harlow International’s Iraqi subsidiaries Al Murabit Security Services (AMS) and Al Thaware Security Services (ATS) have been awarded the ISO 18788:2015 accreditation

Both companies are the first to be awarded the UKAS and IQ Verify witnessed assessment on ISO 18788:2015 in the world. The globally recognised benchmark is the highest accreditation in the security services industry and both companies are also the first Iraqi-owned businesses to attain the standard through UKAS.

The ISO 18788 is awarded to security services operators who reach the highest operational and management standards. As a challenging standard, ISO 18788:2015 provides the principles and requirements for a security operations management system (SOMS).

ATS and AMS are notable among security providers in Iraq and 97 per cent of the workforce is local. This ensures that their approach to security is informed by a unique perspective: they are committed to building local knowledge, skills and expertise in the areas in which they operate.

Harlow International operates primarily in Iraq with business development offices in London, Dubai, and Korea.
