Information technology — Service management — Part 11: Guidance on the relationship between ISO/IEC 20000-1 and service management frameworks: ITIL® (Adopted ISO/IEC 20000-11:2021, first edition, 2021-08)
Standards development within the Information Technology sector is harmonized with international standards development. Through the CSA Technical Committee on Information Technology (TCIT), Canadians serve as the SCC Mirror Committee (SMC) on ISO/IEC Joint Technical Committee 1 on Information Technology (ISO/IEC JTC1) for the Standards Council of Canada (SCC), the ISO member body for Canada and sponsor of the Canadian National Committee of the IEC.
For brevity, this Standard will be referred to as CSA ISO/IEC TS 20000-11 throughout.
The ISO/IEC Technical Specification was reviewed by the CSA TCIT under the jurisdiction of the CSA Strategic Steering Committee on Information and Communications Technology and deemed acceptable for use in Canada. This Standard has been formally approved, without modification, by the Technical Committee and has been developed in compliance with Standards Council of Canada requirements for National Standards of Canada. It has been published as a National Standard of Canada by CSA Group.
This document provides guidance on the relationship between ISO/IEC 20000–1 and a commonly used service management framework, ITIL 4. It can be used by any organization or person wishing to understand how ITIL can be used with ISO/IEC 20000–1, including:
a) an organization that has claimed or demonstrated or intends to claim or demonstrate conformity to the requirements specified in ISO/IEC 20000–1 and is seeking guidance on the use of ITIL to establish and improve an SMS and the services;
b) an organization that already uses ITIL and is seeking guidance on how ITIL can be used to support efforts to demonstrate conformity to the requirements specified in ISO/IEC 20000–1;
c) an assessor or auditor who wishes to understand the use of ITIL as a support in achieving the requirements specified in ISO/IEC 20000–1.
Clause 4 describes how ITIL can support the demonstration of conformity to ISO/IEC 20000–1. Clause 5 correlates the ITIL documents to requirements in ISO/IEC 20000–1. The tables in Annex A correlate terms and clauses in ISO/IEC 20000–1 to ITIL and vice versa; the tables in Annex B correlate clauses in ISO/IEC 20000-1 to the ITIL 4 publications and vice versa.
