What Is Certification?

What Are Standards?

A standard, by definition, is a set of rules to help companies develop, control, and manage not only processes, but materials, products, services, technologies, and systems to a specific set of requirements. Some examples of accredited standards include ISO 9001, Responsible Recycling (R2), ISO 27001, and AS9100D.

What Is Certification?

In order to be recognized as meeting a standard’s requirements, companies must become certified. Certification can be attained through accredited third-party certification bodies (CBs) such as Perry Johnson Registrars, Inc., which will audit clients to ensure that the requirements of the standard in question are met. Only once conformance with the standard is verified will a certificate (certification) be issued.

Why Become Certified?

Certification through an accredited CB is similar in concept to receiving a degree from an accredited university; it signals to others (potential clients, buyers, suppliers, etc.) that a company has taken the extra steps to prove they meet the requirements of a standard and that they are committed to the integrity necessitated by certification.

Who Needs Certification?

Any business with defined processes and systems can benefit from the structure and added credibility of quality certification. For some industries, such as automotive or aerospace manufacture and supply, certification is all but mandatory to prove conformance to mandated rules and requirements.
