AWS Artifact is now available in the AWS GovCloud (US) Regions, where you’ll now have on-demand access to AWS compliance reports and select online AWS agreements with a single-click in the AWS Management Console.

The AWS GovCloud (US) Regions are isolated and designed to host sensitive data and regulated workloads in the cloud, assisting customers who have United States federal, state, or local government compliance requirements.

AWS Artifact provides on-demand downloads of AWS security and compliance documents, such as AWS ISO certifications, and Payment Card Industry (PCI), AWS Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) Partner Package, and Service Organization Control (SOC) reports. You can submit the security and compliance documents (also known as audit artifacts) to your auditors or regulators to demonstrate the security and compliance of the AWS infrastructure and services that you use. You can also use these documents as guidelines to evaluate your own cloud architecture and assess the effectiveness of your company’s internal controls.

AWS Artifact can also be used to review AWS GovCloud (US) terms and conditions, accept agreements with AWS and designate AWS accounts that process restricted information (such as protected health information), and to track the status of multiple AWS agreements. To learn how to use Artifact to accept agreements for multiple accounts, see Managing Your Agreements in AWS Artifact.
