Conformity Assessment / Accreditation / Standardisation

Testing, inspection, certification, validation and verification are various types of conformity assessment established by international standards, providing for suitable approaches to the individual objects in question. The application of these conformity assessment types is further differentiated according to the relation between the involved parties. Only the third party fulfils the criteria of the highest independence with no engagement in design, manufacture, supply, installation, purchase, ownership, use or maintenance of the objects under assessment.
