Procedure for Certification
- Preliminary audit (optional)
You demonstrate practical application of your quality standards. Our auditors test how effectively they have been implemented.
- Documentation Review
The auditing team determines the extent to which your management system documentation already concurs with the GEFMA standards.
- Issue of Certificate
If your company meets all of the criteria, your company is then awarded the certificate.
- Surveillance Audits
Our half-yearly surveillance audits help you continuously optimize your processes.
- Certification Renewal
After three years the audit is repeated for certification renewal to ensure continued improvement in your processes.
Step by Step to an Integrated Strategy
For additional peace of mind and security, why not combine your GEFMA 710, 720, or 730 certification with an existing quality management system - for example, ISO 9001.
