In the beginning ISO Company came from abroad to perform audit and issued iso certificate in Bangladesh. But now they do not come from abroad. Rather they have agent or direct office in Bangladesh. So, ISO certification cost is cheaper than previous period.

Though there is a lot of ISO auditors in Bangladesh but there is no local certification body in the country. To build a certification body it is necessary to get accreditation body approval. But Bangladesh Accreditation Body or BAB takes very high fee from the iso registrar. So, it is tuff to exist in the market competing with foreign accreditation body in Bangladesh. On the other hand it is tradition of Bangladeshi people to like foreign service rather than local service. That’s why local certification body is not built up in Bangladesh as required.

Many ISO certification bodies are working in Bangladesh. Among them UK based certification body has most of the shares of ISO Certification market in Bangladesh. AAS is the authorized associate of a UK based certification body IQS Audits Ltd. It’s certification cost is the lowest. So, clients is higher than any other certification body.
