CEQMAS provides consultancy to Companies
aiming at certification.
Certification constitutes the recognition
by a third organisation of the conformity of a product, a service, a person or
a company to a standard.
The certifying organisation (Certification
Body) can be accredited or not. Indeed by the accreditation, the State of a country officially recognises the correct
operation of an organisation (Certification Body in the present case). The
accreditation is carried out by public organisations placed under the official
Authorities of a given country. As for certification, accreditation is carried out according to specific
standards relating to the kind of activity performed by the Organisation to
accredit or certify.
The ISO 9000 and ISO 14000 families are
international references for either quality or environmental management
requirements. They are therefore frequently referred to in Certification
Process and are known as "generic management system standards".
However, specific standards or technical
specifications are involved in Product Certification according to National orEuropean Schemes.
