Coronavirus: consequences for Kiwa services

During the current outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19), Kiwa remains committed to serving customers as much as possible. Of course we do follow government measures with regard to the further spreading of the virus. Below you can read what influence this has on training courses, certification, inspection and testing activities and what the possible options and conditions for remote auditing are.

When it comes to inspections or audits on location, Kiwa also follows the guidelines of the Netherlands National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) as much as possible. Kiwa strives to conduct audits or inspections wherever possible. However, if our customers or employees do not feel that activities can be carried out on location in accordance with government-advised measures, then there is the option of conducting the audit or inspection remotely (remote auditing).

Below you can read in which cases an audit or inspection can be carried out remotely and what the possible consequences are. You can also read more about the consequences for Kiwa’s training services.

With these temporary working methods, we as Kiwa can guarantee the continuity of your certificate and/or certification process together with you. The above text may change given the circumstances and insights. We therefore recommend that you regularly consult our website. No rights can be derived from the above text.
