Emaar Hospitality Group has been awarded the ISO 28000 : 2007 certification for its security management system.

Emaar Hospitality Group (EHG), the hospitality and leisure subsidiary of Emaar Properties, announced it has been awarded the ISO 28000 : 2007 certification from British Standards Institute (BSI) for its security management system. 

The development makes EHG the first hotel chain in the world to receive the certification. 

Following a review of the security supply chain management system, BSI awarded the three-year certification to the company.

The certification is based on EHG's "competencies and readiness in implementing appropriate controls to manage potential security threats – both tangible assets such as our buildings as well as our information and data security", the company said in a press statement. 

The ISO 28000 framework evaluates security as a core business function and integrates security prerogatives across all activities.

Remarking on the certification, Chris Newman, chief operating officer of EHG, said: "As the only certifiable standard available today focusing on a holistic security management system, winning the certification is a strong statement on our capabilities to mitigate safety and security risks proactively.

"It demonstrates our ability to optimise operational and capital expenditure and [our] manpower management, contributing to our strong financial fundamentals and our commitment to deliver superior guest experiences."
