Our certificates and reports offer reliable, objective and internationally recognised evidence that you comply with all quality norms. Moreover, they provide your organisation with a lasting quality incentive. Certification can be a useful tool to add credibility, by demonstrating that your product, service, (management) system or employees meet the expectations of your customers. In some cases, certification can even be required by law or contract. We can help you make your company's quality values visible to the world and support you in making a positive difference in your (international) market. Government institutions recognise Kiwa certificates and reports as reliable proof that you comply with European laws and regulations.
More than just certification
Kiwa's services extend beyond simply issuing certificates. At your request, Kiwa - in co-operation with independent experts - can also carry out inspections and research in the fields of risk management, environmental legislation, the working environment and safety issues concerning your products and services. Our combined knowledge of laws and regulations and of technology will ensure you of an impartial and thoroughly grounded evaluation that will exceed both your expectations and the required norm. You can be sure that with Kiwa's input, your organisation will be equipped for the future.

Here are the advantages of certification.) Kiwa helps you from start - aligning your company - to finish - handing you your certificate.
But before that, there are a few steps to take.
ISO stands for International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO). It is an international partnership of national standardisation organisations in 163 countries. The ISO (founded in 1947) is responsible for the development and maintenance of a large number of globally accepted (quality) standards. The name ISO is of course an abbreviation, but it also refers to the Greek 'isos' (equal).
