The Audit Company - Three words that symbolize who we are and what we do: We specialize in audits and certifications of management systems and processes. We draw on our expertise to conduct audits based on around 100 recognized standards, rules and regulations in local markets and worldwide.
Our audits are intelligent, customized and dialog-driven examinations in which auditors apply their extensive skills and industry knowledge. They are a benchmark for whether management systems or processes have been understood and implemented. And whether they are the right choice for achieving an organization’s stated goals.
DQS is one of the world’s leading certification bodies for management systems and processes. It has a reliable record of driving sustainable success, with 80 offices in over 60 countries as well as 2,500 auditors and experts.
DQS GmbH’s senior management consists of Stefan Heinloth (Chairman and Managing Director) and Markus Bleher (Managing Director).
Stefan Heinloth: “We are becoming the management’s partner more and more. We have seen the growing complexity and accelerating pace of change in business today. It’s a complexity that can only be controlled with a good management system. At the same time, businesses are demanding more and more from their management systems. All these trends make me confident in the growing importance of our role as a management system partner.”
Next to the Shareholders Committee the Steering Committee is DQS’s most important governing body. It supports DQS’s senior management with fundamental rules concerning certifications and provides valuable policy guidance since its members represent various stakeholder groups.
The Steering Committee also constitutes DQS’s “committee for safeguarding impartiality” (CSI) according to Clause 6.2 ISO/IEC 17021 and, as such, contributes significantly to market acceptance of DQS certificates.
