Kiwa periodically carries out an assessment of your organisation for the COVID-19 preventive measures quality mark. Protocols and action plans of the organisation are checked. If the policy complies with applicable guidelines to limit the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus, this will result in certification and you will receive a declaration of conformity. This shows that you comply with the relevant guidelines. Your organisation will also be included in the register of Kiwa's COVID-19 preventive measures quality mark. This register lists all organisations that meet the requirements of the quality mark.
