The value of a certificate is always measured by how much the public trusts the accredited certifying body. We do everything we can to earn that trust: We issue internationally accepted certificates based on accredited processes. We keep our audits impartial, independent and appropriate. And we conduct them based on internationally accepted rules such as ISO/IEC 17021, ISO/IEC 17065 as well as ISO 19011, the Guidelines for Auditing Management Systems.
Every year, we subject ourselves to nearly a hundred days of inspections and witness audits by DAkkS, Germany’s national accreditation body, and by system creators such as IATF, UNIFE and IAGQ. And that’s only in Germany. As a result, we – unlike unaccredited certifiers – can guarantee that our certificates are standards-compliant, globally accepted and internationally comparable. And they’re based on more than 100 accredited, approved audit services worldwide.
