The Value of Accreditation

Transparent and credible governance of certification bodies through the accreditation process is fundamentally important to the value of independent assessment and certification.

It is central to stakeholder confidence in ensuring that the competence of assessors and the impartiality of the decision-making process is maintained. Accredited certification of management systems to recognised national or international standards provides organisations with a credible means of managing risk, improving efficiencies, and fostering continual improvement and greater competitiveness.

We are recognised by over 50 accreditation bodies:
