The certifications are, today, fundamental in the production sector.
The national accreditation body authorizes some certification bodies to issue international standards, such as ESQCERT.
ESQCERT is an objective, impartial and independent certification and inspection body accredited by ESYD, for the ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 45001 and ISO 45001 standards. ESYD is the national accreditation body adhering to the EA-MLA mutual recognitions agreements. In addition, all certificates issued by ESQCERT LTD are valid internationally.
ESQCERT is a certification body recognized by ACCREDIA for the EA 28 ISO 9001 sector and its certificates are valid for the construction market in Italy.
Among the accredited bodies, ESQCERT plays an important role as it is attentive to the needs and requirements of its customers. In fact, it offers its vast and complete range of service in all sectors of the market by customizing its offer to individual business realities.
The business managers choose a visual management based on the compliance with international standards, which is often required as minimum requirement by the stakeholders.
The main voluntary and required certifications are ISO9001, ISO45001, ISO14001,but ESQCERT may issue others in partnership, like EMAS, ISO5001, ISO22000, HACCP-UNI 10854, UNI EN 16636,
ISO 37000, ISO 39001, ISO 50001, ISO 27001, PRODUCT CERTIFICATE, EN 1090, WELDING LICENSE RELEASES, GLOBALGAP, GRASP CERTIFICATION, SA 8000.
So the volontary certifications may cover various business processes, in addition to the product.
In fact the corporate social responsibility has become an essential element for companies that want to demonstrate their commitment to quality of management systems, to environmental protection and to safety of workers.
As there is not one single international standard, the companies should achieve various certifications to demonstrate their continuous improvement.
Confronted with all this, the companies should rely on accredited bodies to require certifications attesting to their commitment to pursue quality management system.
The industrial sector is definitely the most careful to this issue, but every business may obtain the recognition of their commitment.
THE CERTIFICATIONS ARE ISSUED BY AUDIT AT THE CONSUMER.
ESQCERT issues certifications only to companies operating under reference international standards.
Each certification has value over a period of three years, after that it should be renewed through a comprehensive review attesting to the maintenance of compliance with the reference standards. In this period, the organization must be examined periodically.
