Certification Policy

Our aim is to promote, encourage awareness, environmental responsibility and help to continuously improve certification management issues within industry, commerce and the public domain. We understand the importance of impartiality in carrying out our management system certification activities, managing any conflict of interest and ensuring objectivity within our management system.

We wish to achieve our aims as a major international accredited certification body and recognise that effective management of our customers, our staff, our certification process and our business results makes good business sense. It will be a fundamental and integral part of our business strategy. We will achieve this by:

  • Providing our customers with a professional service that is perceived to add value to their business and satisfy their expectations;

  • Caring for and valuing our staff;
