Company Membership Application Form
The company membership application form is a comprehensive form requiring a prospective member company to self certify that they are compliant with the various CREST requirements.
During the application process, we will require copies of the following documents:
- Copy of professional indemnity insurance certificate or company letter confirming level professional indemnity insurance.
- Copy of sample security penetration testing contract, including terms and conditions.
- Copy of any standards compliance certificates (e.g. ISO27001, ISO9001).
Start Date and Duration of Membership
You will be notified when your application has been approved. Your membership will start immediately upon notification and will run for 1 year. Notification will be via email to your point of contact as provided in the company application form.
At the start of your membership a certificate will be posted to the point of contact provided in your application form and your company details will be posted on this website.
Prospective Members Evaluation
CREST carries out an assessment of your application, based on the information provided in your application form, following which, CREST reserves the right to carry out an audit of your processes and procedures against the CREST standards.
Your point of contact will be kept informed during this process in order that any issues may be resolved.
In the event of a membership application not meeting the guidelines, further supporting evidence will be requested for review, prior to a decision being made.
Use of Contractors for CREST tests
CREST does not prohibit the use of contractors on CREST tests. However, it is essential that all members of a CREST test team follow CREST standards for test conduct and methodology.
To this end we require that contractors agree to follow the CREST approved procedures and methodologies of the company to which they are contracting. This must be agreed in writing and form part of the contract, along with any further conditions as required by the end client.
Full details are available from firstname.lastname@example.org.
CREST membership costs £7000 per year.
