What are the costs involved in obtaining certification?

As part of our requirements under JAS-ANZ, we need to get an understanding of your company size (staff numbers by role, how many in that particular role – Full Time / Part Time / Casual / Sub-Contract), locations and scope of operations must be considered before we can provide you with costs.

Once we have some details we can provide you with initial cost estimates. Please contact us for further guidance if required.

How do we become certified and what is the process?

The certification process consists of a number of steps:

Stage One Assessment – A top-level desktop review which evaluates your management system documentation.

Stage Two Assessment – A deeper insight into how your system documentation is implemented across the business with support records of evidence.

Certification – a ‘Statement of Certification’ is issued, confirming compliance with the standard and a specific report against the requested standard. Certification then lasts in a 3-year cycle.

How long does the certification process take?

This can vary depending on preparedness, experience, and the size of the organisation.

Smaller organisations will generally move through faster than a larger scale organisation.

How long is certification valid for?

Certification is valid for a 3-year period from the date of issue, subject to regular surveillance assessments.

Our Product Certification scheme certification is valid for a 5-year period, subject to regular surveillance assessments.
