Professional data centers like LCL provide assurance and security. Certifications make that tangible. A certificate is an external quality assessment that is regularly reviewed. The certifications below prove that LCL meets certain standards and requirements, checked by an independent body. We therefore strive for continuous improvement of our services and processes.

Tier 3 data center – IBM certificate

LCL's data centers are Tier 3 classified data centers. A Tier 3 classification means 99.98% minimum availability of our services. We achieve this by resolutely opting for redundant infrastructure. All our systems have been duplicated and provided with a backup installation. In this way, our data centers continue to run at full capacity, even during maintenance or power failure. Your business continuity is therefore guaranteed at all times.
These Tier 3 certificates were awarded by IBM.

ISO 14001 certificate – BSI

The ISO 14001 certificate shows that LCL's environmental management system complies with international environmental legislation. In addition, we continue to make constant efforts to reduce our ecological footprint. We obtained the ISO 14001 certificate by focusing, among other things, on:


  • continuous monitoring of power consumption to detect unnecessary energy consumption;
  • cold corridors for efficient and local cooling of the servers;
  • 100% green electricity;
  • Providing NOVEC 1230, an ecological extinguishing gas that is harmless to humans and the environment;


The ISO 14001 certificate was issued by BSI.

ISO 27001 certificate – BSI

The ISO 27001 certificate, awarded by BSI, proves that LCL operates good information security. The integrity, confidentiality and availability of your data are guaranteed at LCL. We apply clear, strict procedures to protect information and respond to potential disaster scenarios. The security of your data is also given high priority in the daily work of our employees.

ISO 45001 certificate – BSI

Our data centers comply with the new international standard for professional health and safety. This is also verified by the ISO 45001 certificate. We are the first data center in Belgium to receive the ISO 45001 certificate.
We therefore take safety in the workplace very seriously and want to create greater awareness of the safety/security risks in data centers.


The ISO 45001 certificate was awarded by BSI.

ISAE 3000 type 2 and ISAE 3402 type 2 reports

These quality reports provide an insight into risk management, as well as the quality and reliability of internal processes and information security at LCL.

ISAE 3000 focuses on operational management, while ISAE 3402 works from a financial perspective. The criteria covered in the report include access to the data center, incident management, maintenance of the perimeter and generators, among other things, etc.

The efforts we undertake in the area of information security are tested over a full year in a type II report. The reports prove that you can count on secure and properly maintained infrastructure at LCL.

Consultancy firm Deloitte carries out this audit on an annual basis.

PCI DSS Compliant by PCI Security Standards

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is an information security standard for organisations that handle credit card data from major card scheme brands.


The standard was established to improve checks surrounding card-holder data and thus reduce credit card fraud. Validation of compliance is performed annually by an external Qualified Security Assessor (QSA): FortyTwo Security.

Although LCL is not itself involved in the processing of credit card data, this does show that it is a reliable partner for customers who come into contact with it. Physical shielding of the equipment is the most important criterion that has to be met.
