How to Select Certification Body for ISO Certification?

From this article you will know what things should be considered to select certification body.

What is Certification Body?

Certification Body is the third party organization who provides ISO Certificate on various ISO Standards. This is also known as certification company. This party direct works with your organization. It performs required audits before issuing ISO Certificate. After issuing certificate regular Surveillance audits are also done by this ISO office.

What is Accreditation Body?

Accreditation Body(AB) is also known as authorization Body. It can be government or nongovernment organization. This looks after the Certification Body(CB). How your CB is working everything is checked by the AB.  However AB has no direct connection with you.


Before selecting your certification body you have to consider few things. If you think the purpose of the certificate is marketing purpose and meeting domestic customer and  local tenderer’s requirements then you can take non-accredited certificate. But if your business is international or if you have export business then you will have to consider internationally recognised certificate.

Only accredited certificate is internationally accepted. So, you have to find any Certification Body who has accreditation from Accreditation Body (AB). For finding new buyers for your product or services globally it is wise decision selecting a accredited certification company. You can check our CB and AB’s logo from the page CB page.

There is no specific value for any specific accreditation body. Because they all are operated by a unique and common standard which is issued by Geneva based Head Office ISO. But sometimes it is seen that some prospects ask to get a specific accreditation body’s logo in their certificate. In this regard they pay high cost for certification. Actually it is fully valueless and wasting your money only.

No stakeholder or buyer or interested party will ask you to have a specific logo or specific accreditation body’s logo in the certificate. They may ask only accredited certificate. Nothing more. Nothing more is required.  So, you can take any accreditation body’s  logo enriched certificate whose fee is the lowest.

On the other hand accreditation body has no connection with you. They will never come to check you or audit you. They audit your certification body only. So, in this regard choose a certification body  who follows  less complicated method, less documentation procedures  and finally at the  lowest price.
