Certification is subject to supervision. Certification bodies are themselves audited by the relevant authorities and bodies, as part of the approval and accreditation process. In Latvia, the Latvian National Accreditation Bureau (LATAK), is the designated body for the accreditation of certification bodies according to the ISO/IEC 17021-1: 11 standard, which requires independence, competence and impartiality. Certi W ® takes all the measures necessary to meet these requirements and ensure the reliability of its decisions.
Certi W ® is accredited by LATAK, a MLA member.
The MLA is an agreement signed between the EA accreditation body members to recognise the equivalence, reliability and therefore acceptance of accredited certifications, inspections, calibration certificates and test reports across Europe.
The MLA eliminates the need for suppliers of products or services to be certified in each country where they sell their products or services, and therefore provides a means for goods and services to cross boundaries in Europe and throughout the world.
It delivers confidence in the service supplied by accredited laboratories, inspection and certification bodies, thereby providing the framework for goods and services to cross borders in Europe and throughout the world, acting as a “passport for trade”.
The National Accreditation Body’s mark on test reports and certificates is your assurance of the benefits of the MLA.
In compliance with the accreditation requirements aiming at guaranteeing the independence and impartiality of its certification work, Certi W ® has set up the Certification Advisory Council. It supervises the certification activities according to the procedures, regulation or standards involved in each entity of the Certification Body
