ABOUT US


We provide specialised certification, auditing and professional training services

OUR VALUES

Moral integrity


Our business is operated with the utmost probity. We acknowledge that there is no good way of doing the wrong thing and we are committed to ensuring that our activities be conducted in an impartial, fair and transparent manner. Our processes and procedures are constantly monitored and improved as well as being audited by the competent authoritative bodies. Our committee for the safeguarding of impartiality also supervises our certification activities.

Expertise


We are committed to choosing and motivating our human resources in order to ensure the highest level of the most up-to-date expertise in the conduct of our business. We aspire to excellence in all our activities. We seek continual improvement of our business practices, maintaining constant attention to business efficiency in our operations and using resources in the most efficient manner. Professionally, we prefer and encourage teamwork in our operations.

Social responsibility


We are committed to conducting our business as responsible members of society in general, contributing to the advancement of local communities, in accordance with the primary role of a company. We are committed to promoting, through our certification activities, the reduction of the environmental impact of business activities with the aim of long-term preservation. We are also committed to ensuring our full compliance with regulations on health and safety at work.

Cost-consciousness


We pay constant attention to and have a responsible attitude towards costs and waste in order to preserve the financial resources needed to keep improving our competitiveness and ensure our steady development. For a company like ours, which sends auditors across the country throughout the year, optimum logistics mean lower costs to the customer and lower environmental impacts, while contributing to local job creation throughout the country.

Customer partnership


Being conscious that customer success is a main contributor to our own success, our priority is to pay maximum attention to customer needs. Constant customer feedback is the basis of the continuous improvement of our products and services, yet we remain impartial in our judgement. Certiquality seeks to strike a partnership with each company that considers management systems to be an effective and modern way of improving its organisation and the products and services that are placed on the market.
