Highlander security shredding, new EN15713 certification achievement

Highlander have recently achieved another important certification to the company’s repertoire, EN15713 covers information destruction services and after a rigorous audit this was achieved on the 1st December 2015.

The standard includes various parameters for operating a secure and professional shredding service such as secure premises with dedicated destruction and storage areas, full CCTV systems with remote monitoring services, vetted staff and comprehensive “deeds of confidentiality” signed and agreed by staff, secure collection vehicles with alarms, immobilisers and tracking system, full audit trail systems for all materials collected for destruction and shred sizes in line with DIN security requirements.

The achievement of this standard required contribution from all employees and considerable investment from the company of over £50,000, this is to allow Highlander to enter into the security shredding market from 1st January 2016, which we will provide more details on shortly.

Stephen Duffy commented: “This is another milestone for the company which can genuinely be attributed to the contributions of all staff, EN15713 is a basic requirement for companies offering security shredding services and we will be adding to this by being further audited by the United Kingdom Security Shredding Association (UKSSA) later on in the month, prior to being approved as full members. Both accreditations will give all users of our service absolute peace of mind that their confidential waste will be destroyed securely and professionally.”

If you think you think your current shredding service contractor is providing a poor service or simply want a more competitively priced service, please contact us at 01355 524 215 or at shredding@ – we will provide details of a new dedicated website for the service in the near future
