1. Who is this scheme designed for?
a. Organisations that wish to demonstrate to customers that they are ISO 9001, ISO 14001 or OHSAS 18001 compliant but do not need an accredited certificate.
2. What is the difference between accredited and unaccredited certification?
In the United Kingdom certification bodies may apply to the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) for accreditation of their certification scheme. This level of certification is often required by government bodies and other corporate entities. Many other customers are concerned only with ensuring that their suppliers are compliant with the standards. Accredited certification is indicated by the "crown and tick" UKAS mark in the UK and companies such as BSIQA, LRQA and SGS are providers of this type of certification.
Note: The Sovereign Certification Limited certification scheme is not accredited but we will still advise clients upon request.
3. Do you provide a certificate and logo?
Following completion of the assessment process we issue a Certificate of Registration which is subject to annual renewal and our company logo indicating the standard that you are certificated for.
