Trusted Information Security Assessment Exchange (TISAX) is an assessment and exchange mechanism for information security in the automotive industry. The TISAX certification confirms that a company’s information security management system complies with defined security levels and allows sharing of assessment results across a designated platform.


The Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) collaborates with multiple companies across the value chain to design, manufacture, and distribute their vehicles. The OEM frequently shares confidential information, such as a prototype design, with the supplier base to facilitate collaboration. If valuable data is not effectively protected, the exchanges along the supply chain may cause losses, manipulations or even theft of trade secrets. Consequently, OEMs want to ensure that their suppliers and partners, including marketing and sales organisations, have a solid information security management system before contracting.

Guide to Achieve TISAX Label


As a first step, identify your company’s requirements and map them against your implemented information security management system (ISMS).

  • Suppose your company still needs an effective information security management system (ISMS). In that case, one option could be implementing an ISMS according to the leading management system standard for information security, ISO/IEC 27001. The implementation and certification according to ISO/IEC 27001 are not requirements for TISAX but ensure effective information security management for your company. Furthermore, it’s a solid foundation for a subsequent TISAX assessment.  
  • The process to achieve a TISAX certification starts with a thorough self-assessment. A good understanding of the TISAX requirements and criteria is vital for internal analysis and can help you take necessary steps to close critical gaps before the external audit.


A third-party assessment follows the initial and mandatory self-assessment. The audit can either require a documentation-based plausibility check (Assessment Level 2) or a more comprehensive on-site inspection (Assessment Level 3). Upon completing the successful audit, the auditor uploads the final report to your TISAX platform, including your company’s TISAX label. With your approval, OEMs and other partners can access your TISAX status, thereby attaining a third-party confirmation of your security efforts.
