Mandatory: VDA ISA catalog version 6.0 for all those who order the TISAX® assessment now

Version 6.0 is now mandatory for all those who wish to commission a TISAX® assessment.

The introduction of the new version 6 of the VDA ISA catalog on April 1, 2024 will have a significant impact on the TISAX® certification process. Until March 31, companies that commissioned a TISAX® assessment could still be audited according to version 5.1 of the VDA ISA.

Since April 1, 2024, companies that have already commissioned an assessment in accordance with ISA 5 have the option of switching to ISA 6 in consultation with the audit service provider. The transitional period for assessment procedures already in progress will last until September 30, 2024.

The introduction of the new version of the ISA catalog also affects the TISAX® assessment objectives and labels. Previously, there were two label levels for the “Information Security” criteria catalog: “Info High” and “Info Very High”. Version 6 now uses four labels: “Availability” and “Confidential”. The old “Info” labels are no longer available. This introduces a stricter distinction between confidentiality and availability. However, the distinction between the “high” and “very high” levels of protection remains.
