How to choose a certification body

Criteria to consider include:

  • evaluate several certification bodies
  • take into consideration that the cheapest might demonstrate to be the most costly if its auditing is below standard, or if its certificate is not recognized
  • ascertain whether the certification body has auditors with experience in your business sector

An important aspect to shed light on is whether or not the certification body has been accredited and, if so, by whom. In simple terms, accreditation means that a certification body has been officially approved as competent to carry out certification by a national accreditation body.

To make a decision, follow your consultant’s recommendation


consult the International Organization for Standardization.
