Certification bodies for products, processes and services Accreditation in accordance with DIN EN ISO/IEC 17065

The certification of products, processes or services can only take place within the framework of a certification scheme, which determines the products, processes or services to be certified and the requirements they must fulfil. The certification scheme also specifies the types and combinations of conformity assessment techniques used to assess the product, process or service. The relevant international standard for product, process or service certification bodies is DIN EN ISO/IEC 17065.

Accreditation in accordance with DIN EN ISO/IEC 17065

DIN EN ISO/IEC 17065 contains principles for the certification of products, processes and services. It defines requirements for the competence and impartiality of certification bodies offering their services in this area. The goal of application of the standard is to establish confidence and trust in the work of accredited bodies and in the certification of products, processes or services.

Certification schemes for products, processes and services may have differences that need to be considered: some certification schemes for products, processes or services include the initial review and assessment of the quality management systems of their suppliers, followed by surveillance that takes into account the quality management system of the production facility and testing of samples of production and the free market. Other schemes rely on initial testing and repeat testing, while still others include only type testing.
