Management Systems Certification is the process by which an external entity examines and certifies the effectiveness of an organization's management procedures, measured as the degree of compliance to applicable international standards.
This examination is carried out by means of an audit which, when passed, leads to the issuance of a certificate by the corresponding certifying body, valid for a period of 3 years.
Certification proves compliance to industry standards and is a key part of the quality assurance process, helping companies better achieve their quality objectives.
