Our certification services

Bureau Veritas presents its Certification business

Across increasingly competitive sectors, it provides organisations of all sizes with a means of competitive advantage and an opportunity to enter new markets.

As an organization committed to process efficiency and transparency, product and system safety, environmental care, you are probably aware that certification can bring solid recognition from your clients and stakeholders, and get you into a continuous improvement process.

In a vast number of areas, we are accredited to verify and give official acknowledgment (with a certificate) that a system, product, person or asset complies with a specified requirement for which certification is demanded.

Certification usually includes on-site audits, standardized testing and inspections, and then surveillance audits during the certification period of validity. It may include, where applicable, a design review phase.


    Key steps in our certification process are :

    • Definition of certification scope.
    • Pre-audit (optional): gap analysis and diagnosis of your current position against standard.
    • Certification audit performed in 2 stages :
      - Stage 1. Readiness review performed to verify that the organization is ready for certification
      - Stage 2. Evaluation of implementation, including the effectiveness, of the management system of the organization
    • • A certificate valid for 3 years is issued upon satisfactory results of stage 2 audit.
    • Surveillance audits to verify that the management system continues to fulfill the requirements of the standard and monitor the continual improvement.
    • Re-certification after 3 years to confirm the continued conformance and effectiveness of the management system as a whole
