What is ISO 18295?
Developed by the International Standardization Committee, ISO 18295 replaced the previously applicable European standard EN 15838. ISO 18295 is more structured and as one of the ISO standards, more consistent with the other commonly used by organizations ISO management systems.
The standard consists of two parts, ISO 18295-1 and ISO 18295-2. ISO 18295-1 outlines the requirements for CCCs, and ISO 18295-2 describes the requirements for client organization that mandates the CCC.
Both documents are applicable to both in-house (captive) and outsourced (third-party operator) CCCs, regardless of their size, across all sectors and all communication channels, including incoming and outgoing communication.
ISO 18295-1 covers:
- Customer relationship requirements
- Customer-focused leadership
- Human resources
- Operational processes
- Service delivery infrastructure
- Client relationship
In addition, ISO 18295-1 provides indicators (KPIs) that should be monitored by the customer contact center or the client, as well as recommendations on the best KPI practices, goals and reporting. It also indicates the most important information that should be included in the contract between the CCC and the client.
