Applying for the certification

To apply for certification, you must fill out an application form. The application can be filled in by an organization representative, as well as by a M&P Certification representative. Based on the completed application, M&P Certification prepares a certification offer.
Mainly, the certification contract is concluded for 3 years, covering the entire certification cycle.


Certification Audit (Two Stages)

Stage 1 of the Certification Audit
The audit of the 1st stage of the certification is performed to make sure that the client has all the necessary documented information of the management system, as well as the circumstances of the client’s organization are evaluated and the readiness of the staff for the second stage of the certification audit is ascertained. During the audit, the auditor should verify the client’s readiness for the second-stage certification audit. All identified weaknesses need to be corrected until Stage 2 of certification audit.
- The period between the Stage 1 and Stage 2 audits of the Certification shall not exceed 6 months. If this period is longer, then the Stage 1 audit must be repeated.

Stage 2 of the Certification Audit
The Stage 2 audit auditor assesses the practical performance of the system. The second stage audit is a full system audit.
- If significant non-conformities are identified during the second stage audit, they must be corrected in order to make a certification decision, while non-significant non-conformities must be coordinated with the planned activities in order to eliminate them.


Surveillance Audit

The surveillance audit must be carried out not later than 12 months after the date of issue of the certificate, preferably 9 months after the date of issue of the certificate. A surveillance audit may not be a full system audit.
- Next surveillance and recertification audits should preferably be performed 12 months after the previous audit.
