Certification Readiness Process 2017-10-27T04:50:00+00:00

Certification means that your Business Management System is certified to one or more Australian/New Zealand Standards (AS/NZ Standard) and/or International Standards (ISO Standards).

ISO (the International Organisation for Standardisation) is an independent, non-governmental organisation, based in Geneva, Switzerland. It is the world’s largest developer of voluntary international standards and facilitates world trade by providing common standards between nations.

ISO Standards are documents that provide requirements, specifications, guidelines or characteristics that can be used consistently to ensure that materials, products, processes and services are fit for their purpose.

All developed countries and most developing countries have Accreditation Bodies that are either part of governments or recognised by governments. In Australia and New Zealand, the governments established the Joint Accreditation System of Australia and New Zealand (JAS-ANZ) for the accreditation of Conformity Assessment Bodies (CABs). The CABs are the entities that ultimately audit and certify organisations’ management systems, products or persons in their region, and elsewhere in the world.

Businesses certified to ISO Standards within Australia and New Zealand operate Business Management Systems which are recognised and valid all around the world.

ISO Certification Experts provides consultancy services to ensure your business is ready to start the certification process. The Conformity Assessment Body provides the certification, and their auditors conduct the audits and advise if Certification should be granted.
