Certification process
Certification according to K21030 starts with an application where you specify which scopes you would like to be certified. Based on this application you will receive a fee proposal. You can enter into a certification agreement with Kiwa based on this fee proposal. Kiwa assesses whether the criteria for certification are met based on an independent acceptance audit. Certification will follow upon a positive audit outcome. However, if non-compliances are identified, you shall rectify these first.

After the initial certification, annual inspections are conducted to establish that the certified processes and completed works continue to comply with the requirements.
