ISO Certification is the Common Language in Today’s Global Market.

INTI.Q is a PECB Authorized Partner.  Our goal is to ensure that our customers have a comprehensive and effective certification process.

The PECB Management System Certification program is accredited by International Accreditation Service-IAS to ISO/IEC 17021-1 Conformity assessment – Requirements for bodies providing audit and certification of management systems. IAS is part of the IAF – MLA Multilateral Recognition Agreement where all the countries participate to create policies for accreditation bodies to follow. This process uses ISO standards that provide the global recognition to your certificate.

PECB uses ISO/IEC 17021-1 to ensure competent audit teams, with adequate resources, following a consistent process and reporting audit results in a consistent manner. It also helps create confidence among regulators, consumers, suppliers and other stakeholders that certificates granted by one certification body are effectively equivalent to that offered by another.

ISO certification is a third-party audit performed by a certification body such as PECB who, upon verification that an organization is in compliance with the requirements of the ISO standard, will issue a certificate. This certification is then maintained through regularly scheduled annual surveillance audits by the registrar, with re-certification of the management system performed on a tri-annual basis.

What is a Third Party Assessment?

Third party audits can be mandatory (depending on the standard/regulation and the industry sector) or they can be voluntary. In both cases, the organization wishing to be audited will have to contract the services of a qualified organization to perform an independent and objective audit such as registrars (certification bodies) or regulators. This process is completed for certification, registration or verification purposes.
