The Kiwa COVID-19 preventive measures quality mark for the hospitality sector helps to create clarity and trust among guests. Kiwa has extensive experience in carrying out quality assessments, including in the tourism and recreation sector, the healthcare sector and the sports and transport sector. Various organisations use Kiwa's COVID-19 quality mark to demonstrate to customers, employees and other stakeholders that all required measures are being taken to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus. In this way, Kiwa helps you create clarity and trust when it comes to COVID-19 prevention.

Periodic assessment

By means of an independent on-site assessment, the governmental guidelines and the sector-specific requirements will be tested by a Kiwa auditor. This includes the provision of information (internal/external communication), purchasing and sales resources, visible measures and hygiene and safety.

Within the framework of the quality mark, Kiwa periodically carries out an assessment in which the company's protocols and preventive measures are checked. If the policy to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus complies with the applicable guidelines, this will result in a Kiwa declaration of conformity and quality mark.
