As I understand it, the standard is a BSI standard which was derived from the former British Standard BS 8800.

OHSAS is used for certification purposes, BS 8800:1996 is really only a guidance document. The UKAS establishes the criteria for a fully accredited certification system. 18001 is the standard, 18002 is the guidance document. From my understanding it was in its 4th draft in January of this year. It has not been developed thru the formal standards process. It is based on sponsership with BSI leading the way.

NQA will register against 18001: [email protected]
SGS will register against 18001: [email protected]

The above info is based on info I have collected. Hope this helps:)
