My ISO 27001:2013 LA certificate has expired. I wanted to know does IRCA approved LA have expiry ? Also ISO standards are changed every 5 years. Shall I go for LA course now or wait for standard to change ?
The validity of a LA certificate refers to the period of time by which the certificate can be accepted as part of the process to become a certification auditor working for a certification body. For other purposes the LA certificate is valid as long as the version of the standard to which it refers is current. Considering that, if you are not going to apply for a certification auditor job you do not need to go for a LA course.
Also, since the standard version has not changed yet, there is no need to go for a LA course.
