Certification, why?

Many organizations have their management system certified by an objective  ‘outsider’ known as a certification body (CB). This CB is supervised by the Council for Accreditation. Companies have several reasons for choosing certification, which will differ from organization to organization but will be a mix of the following:

  • Improving performance
  • Improving employee involvement
  • More certainty about risk management
  • Better relationship with customers
  • Better relationship with neighbours and supervisory bodies
