Management systems certification is an independent evaluation of the management system applied in an organisation and confirmation of compliance with the chosen standard's requirements and the organisation's internal rules and policies.

Certification activities are separate activities from the review of the application to the completion of the certification. They also include audits of an organisation's management system. Audits are a systematic, independent and documented process for obtaining objective audit evidence and their objective assessment in order to determine the extent to which the audit criteria are met (e.g. the applicable management system standard, certification requirements, etc.).

The audit programme for the initial certification cycle includes an initial two-stage audit, surveillance audits in the first and second year and a recertification audit after the third year but before the expiry of the certification.

It is also possible to carry out special audits, e.g. for scope extension or to investigate complaints. All audits are carried out by competent auditors and technical experts who have been assessed and approved by the certification body.

INCERT also applies procedures to ensure that auditors perform their duties impartially and objectively and respect confidentiality. The full terms and conditions under which certification is carried out can be found in our Certification Rules.
