How to obtain ISO certification?
The certification path consists of 4 stages:
All the economic aspects and the auditors’ activities related to the certification process may be agreed at this stage. The finalization of a contract concludes this part. Indeed the process for certification depends on the contract stipulated between the company and the accreditation body. Generally, it is valid for three years.
Preliminary Audit preliminare (optional and possibly requested by the customer)
It is an initial assessment of the current company’s management system. The preliminary audit is not involved in the normal process for certification and any possible improvement thus is intended to be nothing but a suggestion and it is not included in the official audit report.
Certification Audit – Stage 1
The audit is held in the company office. In this stage, the auditor gathers all the informations and evaluates the documents referring to the management system that must be certified. The auditor analyses the compulsory and voluntary standards. This is a preparatory step for the second stage of the Certification Audit.
Certification Audit – Stage 2
In this stage, the auditor will ascertain that the company complies with the management system. At the end of this process, the auditor will submit the ISO issue request to the accreditation body, if a significant nonconformity does not occur.
What is the role of the auditor for a certification body?
The audits are conducted by auditors with significant auditing expertise. The auditing stands for a checking process for the company and represents the possibility to interact with high-level professionals as well who offers their expertise and qualified advice about management system.
