ISO 20000:2005 - INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY SERVICE MANAGEMENT (ITSM)

ISO 20000:2005 is an international standard that allows organizations to demonstrate excellence and prove best practice in IT Service Management. The standard allows IT service provider organizations to achieve conformance to a service management system which requires them to continually improve their delivery of IT services. It aligns to the IT infrastructure library (ITIL®) best practice framework.

ISO/IEC 20000 consists of several parts:

  • ISO/IEC 20000-1:2011 (Part 1) is the formal specification and defines the requirements for a service management system. The scope includes:
    • General requirements for a service management system
    • Design and transition of new or changed services
    • Service delivery process
    • Relationship processes
    • Resolution processes
    • Control processes


  • ISO/IEC 20000-2:2012 (Part 2) Provides guidance on the application of service management systems, including best practices for service management processes within the scope of ISO/IEC 20000-1.
  • ISO/IEC TR 20000-3 (Part 3) contains guidance on scope definition and applicability of Part 1.
