Certification can be a useful tool to add credibility, by demonstrating that your product or service meets the expectations of your customers. For some industries, certification is a legal or contractual requirement.

Air&cl Provide certification

At Air&cl, we use International Standards, such as ISO 9001 and ISO 14001. Certification by external certification bodies, thus a company or organization cannot be certified by ISO.

However ISO's Committee on Conformity Assessment (CASCO) has produced a number of standards related to the certification process, which are used by certification bodies.

Certification – the provision by an independent body of written assurance (a certificate) that the product, service or system in question meets specific requirements.

Accreditation – the formal recognition by an independent body, generally known as an accreditation body, that a certification body operates according to international standards.

Air&cl a certification body

When choosing a certification body, you should:

  • Evaluate several certification bodies.
  • Check if the certification body uses the relevant CASCO standard
  • Check if it is accredited. Accreditation is not compulsory, and non-accreditation does not necessarily mean it is not reputable, but it does provide independent confirmation of competence.

Displaying your certificate

Remember, when labelling a product or system as certified to an ISO standard:

  • Don't say: "ISO certified" or "ISO certification"
  • DO say: "ISO 9001:2015 certified" or "ISO 9001:2015 certification" (for example).
