The Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure, CPNI, (the UK Governments' authority for protective security advice), has a new standard that organisations (government, law enforcement, NHS, schools etc) must comply with regarding the disposal of sensitive assets. Organisations will only be able to engage contractors who been approved to comply with 7010 under the CPNI's Destruction Services Assurance Scheme.
One requirement of 7010, that will replace EN15713, is that paper documents are cross cut to DIN-P3. This means Organisations will can only be able to engage shredding companies that cross cut, strip cutting will no longer be sufficient as the resultant shred size does not comply with 7010. All of Topwood's shred trucks are MDX - X is for cross cut. For more information click here.
