Management systems certification process

The management system certification process follows three simple steps:

Complete the Exova BM TRADA request for quote form. This allows us to accurately define your scope of certification and to provide you with a quotation and a competent audit team.
Stage 1 – this audit is to confirm your readiness for the stage 2 audit. It includes:
  • review of the management system documentation
  • evaluation of the location and site specific conditions
  • review of the status and understanding of the requirements of the standard
  • evaluation of whether internal audits and management reviews are planned and performed 
Stage 2 – this audit is to confirm that your management system fully conforms with the requirements of the ISO standard. It includes:
  • evaluation of the level of implementation and effectiveness of the management system according to the requirements of the standard
  • a sample audit of the processes and activities defined in the scopea written report on the audit findings and non conformances that need to be addressed.
On completion of step two (and closure of any identified non-conformances) certification is granted by Exova BM TRADA. You will be issued with a certificate and certification marks to demonstrate and promote your certification.
Certification is valid for three years and is maintained through a programme of annual surveillance audits and a recertification audit in the third year before the certification expires.
