We set our own high standards, but we don’t stop at that. We are committed to external validation of our services by holding a number of demanding certifications.
ISO 9001:2008 Quality Standard
Manx Telecom is fully committed to maintaining registration to the International Quality Standard BS EN ISO 9001:2008 and realising the business benefits that come about through registration. The system and processes that are currently in place have evolved on an ongoing basis since our first registration in 1994 and are firmly embedded into company operations.
This extensive assessment of our business management processes has been a key enabler and driver of continuous improvement within Manx Telecom. We are assessed by an external assessor every six months and have maintained continuous compliance since our first certification. We were one of the first companies in the Isle of Man to be awarded this certification.
Quality Policy - 'Manx Telecom is committed to comply with the requirements and continual improvement of our business management system in the interest of our customers.’

Accuracy - BABT
We were the world’s first telecoms operator to gain British Approvals Board of Telecommunications (BABT) approval for the accuracy of our billing across fixed, mobile, and broadband. This means that our customers can have confidence that our billing processes and systems are produced and supported to the highest standards. Manx Telecom remains the only telecommunications provider on the Isle of Man to be BABT approved. It is also the only telecommunications company in the world to have attained BABT approval for all billing aspects across every area of its business.
We provide fully outsourced managed data centre platforms to a range of customers that are required to be compliant with this standard and are audited annually. It is the world’s most advanced and most stringent security standard for online payment processors. PCI DSS is the “gold standard” for protecting customer account data.
Staff dealing with sensitive data, or involved in the security or resilience of our systems, are required to submit to regular security vetting processes.
