Certification is the provision by an independent body of written assurance (a certificate) that the product, service or system in question meets specific requirements. Certification is also known as third party conformity assessment.


Many companies and organizations decide to get certified to one of ISO’s management system standards, such as ISO 9001 and ISO 14001. This is a way of showing outsiders that the organisation has an effective quality management system in place. The best reason for wanting to implement these standards is to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of company operations.

However, companies also may decide to seek certification for many reasons, as certification may:

  • be a contractual or regulatory requirement
  • be necessary to meet customer preferences
  • fall within the context of a risk management programme, and
  • help motivate staff by setting a clear goal for the development of its management system.
