What is the meaning
Certification is the confirmation by a third party that formally recognises that an enterprise possesses an authority and has accomplished certain conformity evaluations.
A management system is the framework of processes and procedures used to ensure that an organisation can fulfil all tasks required to achieve its objectives.
Management systems are a tool that top management applies to achieve results in a complex environment. They provide the framework to establish, maintain and continuously improve the organisation´s performance.
Furthermore by supplying evidence of an effective management system, organisations earn their stakeholder´s trust.
An audit and subsequent certification by BCert provides such evidence. An organisation can thus demonstrate in-house and to third parties, that a management system has been implemented, based on a recognized standard, and assessed by an independent third party.
Additionally, audits by BCert are more than just a formal inspection of conformance to standards. Rather, they focus on providing independent and competent feedback, as well as identifying risks and improvement potential. Employees are involved and motivated, thus promoting commitment and confidence.
