Create trust with ISO certification

The International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) develops and maintains a large number of globally accepted standards. Certification against an ISO standard means that a company or organisation meets quality criteria agreed within the ISO with respect to a particular product, service, management system or business process.

What is ISO certification?

ISO certification means that an organisation meets the requirements set by the ISO for the quality of a product or service or the way in which an organisation operates. Independent external certification bodies such as Kiwa assess on the basis of Audits whether an organisation meets the requirements set in a certain ISO standard. If this is the case, an official ISO certificate is awarded.

Benefits of ISO certification

The use of ISO standards helps organisations to create products and services that are safe, reliable and of good quality. ISO certification also helps companies increase productivity while reducing errors and waste. Certification against ISO standards also ensures transparency. By allowing products from different markets to be compared directly with each other, they facilitate entry into new markets and help develop fair global trade. Certification against an ISO standard also has a positive effect on an organisation's image: it ensures that consumers and end users trust products and services.

Apply for ISO certification

Starting a process for ISO certification starts with a quotation request without obligation. If you choose Kiwa, you can start by preparing your organisation to work according to a certain guideline. Kiwa can help you with this, for example with a trial audit or a baseline measurement. In this way you will know where you stand and what points of attention there are. As soon as your organisation is ready, the initial audit will follow which, if successful, will result in the ISO certificate. After that, we regularly check whether your products, processes or system continue to meet the requirements and whether you can retain the certificate.
