The mission of the North American Security Products Organization, NASPO, is to: develop national and international fraud countermeasure and control standards and to support those standards through education, auditing, certification and accreditation of certification bodies. 

NASPO is an ANSI-accredited standards development organization based in Washington, D.C. Its members include Fortune 500 companies, commercial, industrial, government and non-governmental organizations (NGOs).






The ANSI/ NASPO SA-2013 Security Assurance Standard has been approved for publication on Wednesday July 17, 2013.

This is an update of the ANSI NASPO SA 2008 and contains changes. The standard’s changes reflect the work of the NASPO National Standards Committee (NNSC) composed of users, producers and general interest groups. NASPO would like to thank the members of this committee including the Chairman David Brown and the project leader Graham Whitehead.

It is important to note that this standard has been switched from periodic maintenance to continuous maintenance. This will enable the standard to be revised on an a more frequent basis, allowing for the standard to reflect the needs of the security industry on a more timely basis.

The revised standard will be available in the near future through ANSI and the NASPO office.
