What is ISO?
ISO is an abbreviation of the International Organization for Standardization, headquartered in Geneva. This organization organizes international standards called ISO.
What is accreditation or certification?
Accreditation is the approval of the certification body for the issuance of certificates to different standards. Each country has its own accredited accreditation body. These institutions provide accreditation to certification bodies such as the YBM. Accreditation is achieved by having the designated controls and systems in place. These requirements are also defined by international standards (ISO 17021 for system certification). Once accredited, certification bodies may submit accredited certification such as ISO 9001 to any organization that has undergone successful auditing.
How does the accredited certificate affect accreditation?
It adds value and reliability to the certification. It is the only kind of accredited certification that is generally accepted for new business deals.
How does accreditation work internationally?
Thanks to the International Accreditation Forum (IAF), accreditations are mutually recognized by member countries. Accreditations are widely accepted among the first countries to regulate, there is no official difference between accreditations at present for smooth acceptance in international markets. You can find the list of accreditation bodies for each country at www.iaf.nu.
Can a company switch between certification bodies?
Yes, It can. This is often the case if the organization is not satisfied with the service provided by the certification. The company may change its certification by applying to another certification body.
