The HECVAT, or Higher Education Community Vendor Assessment Tool, is a questionnaire framework designed to help institutions of higher education measure vendor risk. Vendors like OUP complete an Excel template and supply to institutions on request. NB. HECVATs are a North American invention, as such the language within our copy refers to US legislation. Please contact for a copy.

OUP has not yet gained Cyber Essentials certification and we are not ISO 27001 certified as an organisation, however our ISDP team will be seeking this in due course.


OUP seek to gain IMS certification by Fall 2022. Certified products listed in the Global IMS directory are guaranteed to meet the 1EdTech standards, which are vetted for student data privacy.
