How to select iso certification body to get iso certificate

If you are thinking to obtain ISO Certificate, then you have to select your Certification Body carefully. Because there are few things connected with certification. Like certification cost, customer service, documentation cost, ISO consultancy cost, accredited certificate and non accredited certificate etc. Due to existing of many things in the ISO certification the cost is so high.

Certification cost is the major factor to many of you  who are thinking about getting certificate. In Bangladesh there are few certification Bodies and their fees are also different. Most of them are India, Europe, Australia and America based. Due to their geographical location their price are also different.

Some certification bodies are also connected with other business like product inspection. They have higher office cost. So they take higher fee from the clients. In this regard you can find one who works only on iso certification. They are working in a small office. Their office maintenance cost is also smaller then others. So, their certification cost is also lower than others.

You have to consider one thing that is accreditation and non accreditation. This term is also known as authorization. If you want to do international business or export business, then accredited certificate is fit for you. Though accredited certificate fee is higher then non accredited certificate.

There is another wrong idea among the  prospects. They believe some logo like UKAS has special value for ISO Certificate. Actually it is valueless thinking. No party, buyer or tenderer will ask for specific logo enriched certificate like UKAS. It is just like any other accreditation Body. There are many Accreditation Bodies in the world. Some of them are government and non-government. Both are run by following specific ISO Standard.

All accreditation Bodies are run by same standard for same certification scheme. So, there is no special value of  specific accreditation body or body’s logo in the certificate. Concern party will see the Standard which is written in the certificate as well as any logo from any accreditation body. In this regard for save money you can take any accredited certificate which one cost you less money.

Another reason for avoiding accreditation’s logo under consideration because no auditor will come from Accreditation Body to your company to check your quality. Only certification Body’s auditor will come to perform audit in your office or factory. So, apparently there is no contribution to develop your system from accreditation body. So, consider that certification body who has experienced iso auditors.

A question may arise to your mind what is the function of accreditation body. Good question. Yes, the accreditation body audits the certification body. How CB auditors are working it is looked after by accreditation body. So, actually there is no link with you(client) and accreditation body(AB).

However, the people have weakness about UK based certification body. Worldwide people think UK based certification bodies have extra value. Actually conception of establishing ISO has come from British. So, selecting an ISO Certification  Body or receiving certificate from UK is  a great speculation.

What is Accreditation Body

Accreditation Body is also known as AB. It looks after the certification body(CB). It audits the CB. It can also be called the authorization body. It supervises the CB. It sees  how the CB is working. So, this organization helps to increase competency of CB.

Accreditation body follows the standard ISO 17011. On the other hand CB follows the ISO 17021 Standard. Both the standards have come from ISO.

AB can be government or non-government. Both of them’s job is the same. There is no direct link of AB with customers. So, it is not your responsibility to know too much about AB.

However, accredited certificate has good value. So, before going to get your certificate you will have to be sure that you are going to get accredited certificate from your CB. Because there are two kinds of certification body: one is Accredited Certification Body and another one is Non- Accredited Certification Body.
