Accreditation and Certification
SGS in Pakistan is accredited to deliver certification to many standards and regulations – enabling businesses to demonstrate that products, processes and/or services meet customer expectations.
Certification, conducted by an independent third party, confirms that specific requirements relating to a product, person, process or management system have been met. In Pakistan, we offer a number of certification services, including:
- ISO 9001
- ISO 22000
- ISO 14001
- OHSAS 18001
- ISO 27001
- FSSC 22000
- Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP)
- Halal Food Management System (PS-3733)
- International Featured Standard (IFS)
- British Retail Consortium (BRC) standards
Organizations, like SGS, that issue credentials, or certify third parties against official standards, are checked and certified for their competency, authority and credibility, and known as Accredited Certification Bodies (ACB). Before receiving approval to issue credentials and certifications, ACBs are themselves formally vetted and approved by national Accreditation Bodies. This process ensures that the ACBs certification practices are acceptable, competent and ethical. At the same time the assessment ensures an ACB employs appropriate and effective quality assurance.
End-customers and consumers place their trust in services and products without a second thought. Certification bodies must also build trust in their marketplace. Our accreditations are important for many reasons, perhaps most importantly to:
- Protect third parties from fraudulent certifications
- Help companies select a certification body that meets quality and credibility standards
- Ensure the certification process is consistent in its goals and objectives
