ISO Certification in UAE

Table of Contents

You might have came across this term a lot “ISO certified company” and you wondered what does that mean. An ISO certified company is an organization that is able to prove its provision of high quality services or / and products, and its management skillfulness, by following some international requirements that are applicable to its field of work. This proof is recognized by a certificate issued from an ISO certification body after carrying out a certification audit.

What Is an ISO Certification Audit?

An ISO certification audit is an assessment that is carried out by a certification body to check a business performance based on international standards. The audit consists of two stages, the first stage is a documentation review, and the second is an assessment to check if a company is applying what is mentioned in its documents or not; by requesting some evidences from the company. The results of the certification audit will indicate if a company is recommended for ISO certification or not.

After one year of the certification audit, a company will be audited on a yearly basis to ensure its continuing conformity to the ISO requirements. This yearly audit is called a surveillance audit, and it will be done on year 2 and year 3 after the certification audit. The results of the surveillance audit will indicate if a company is recommended for ISO recertification or not.

An ISO recertification audit is usually carried out before the end of year 3 and it will be similar to stage 2 of the ISO certification Audit. After the recertification audit, a company will be audited on a yearly basis to ensure its continuing conformity to the ISO requirements.

What is the meaning of ISO?

The ISO is an independent, non-governmental international organization which consists of experts that develop international standards to support innovation and provide solutions to global challenges. “ISO” stands for “International Organization for Standardization” and it has different acronyms in different languages (IOS in English, OIN in French for Organisation internationale de normalisation), therefore, the founders decided to give it the short form ISO which is derived from the Greek ‘isos’, meaning equal.

Knowing that, we can now move to the different ISO standards and certifications available for different businesses; for example the ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015, ISO 45001:2018, ISO 27000:2018 ..etc. We at Universal Certification and Services, UAE, offer services to help you get these valuable ISO certifications.
