Following another unannounced ADISA audit, Tier 1 is delighted to announce that we have passed the audit and remain ADISA certified, retaining our Distinction with Honours certification. Tier 1 has consistently been one of the few IT Asset Disposal companies to hold the highest level ADISA certification.

The Audit

ADISA’s Tony Benham carried out the audit, which consists of a rigorous investigation into randomly selected assets from our warehouse. The investigation covers contracts and agreements with our customers, a comprehensive GPS tracking report of the assets’ journeys to Tier 1, as well as confirmation of a successful Blancco overwrite. This audit is as robust as any test that an ITAD (IT Asset Disposal) company will be put through.

The audit and our re-accreditation acts to provide peace of mind and confidence to our clients and partners that the services we provide are of the highest quality and standard of security.

Distinction with Honours

Tier 1 is among only a small number of ITAD service providers to hold a Distinction with Honours ADISA certification. The accreditation is the highest awarded by ADISA and has been held by Tier 1 since 2011. Launched in 2010, ASIDA (Asset Disposal & Information Security Alliance), a DIPCOG-recognised group, is an independent body that aims to protect consumers and organisations from ITAD companies whose disposal and IT asset handling practices aren’t secure. They achieve this through the creation of a set of extremely high ITAD practise standards and a multi-layered approach to auditing.

Tier 1 & ADISA

Earlier this year, Tier 1 won ‘Best ADISA ITAD Project’, an award created by the Asset Disposal & Information Security Alliance to recognise the social value our work creates. The award was presented to us for our ‘Through the Gate’ programme with Antz Junction, which sees offenders at HM Prisons receive training, qualifications and employability skills.
