Actually one can be certifed only on BS7799 Pt 2 and not on ISO 17799. 
The former specifies the requirements for an Information Security
Management System (ISMS) based on ISO 17799:2000/BS 7799 Pt1:2000.  ISO
17799 is just a guide to best practices in the management of information
security and hence is not certifiable unlike BS7799 Pt 2 which llists
down the requirements for an ISMS.  Cetification for BS7799 is avauilable
from several international bodies e.g. those accreditated from UKAS
Many local national certification bodies are also in the process of
getting accreditation from org like UKAS to be able to offer
certification for BS7799.

ISO17799:2000 itself is currently undergoing revision (see work done by
ISO/IEC JTC1 SC27/WG1).  In addition the ISO/IEC JTC1 SC27/WG1 is
currently working on an ISMS standard which if accepted should be an
alternative to BS7799.
