Certification Readiness Process Wheel Diagram

Certification is a 3-year cycle starting with initial certification which consists of 2 Audits. Once these are satisfied your business will be granted Certification.

  • Stage 1 Audit is a documentation review where the auditor will ensure your system documentation conforms to the standard(s).

  • Stage 2 Audit is the Certification Audit where the auditor reviews the successful implementation of your system within your business.

In order to maintain your certification, you will be required, as a minimum to have 2 annual surveillances to ensure you are still successfully implementing your system within the business.

After this 3 year cycle, you will then need to be re-certified. This will consist of another stage 2 audit and 2 surveillances. The stage 1 audit doesn’t need to be conducted again providing there has been no change to your documentation or upgrade to new standards.
