What is Certification?

Certification refers to the confirmation of certain characteristics of a business, person or product. Generally, some form of external review, education, or assessment is conducted to provide the confirmation. That review is usually undertaken by a Certification Body.

Certification Bodies are independent organisations that provide third-party confirmation that your management system, product or personnel do actually comply with a particular set of requirements. This shows that the claim is more likely to be true and therefore can be used to help improve brand image and may also increase competitiveness in the market for your product or service.
