The ‘Re-certification’ audit is intended to ensure the continuity of the certification and registration of your management system. Therefore, it must be held before the expiry date, and preferably in the 33rd month from the date of certification and registration.
The re-certification audit, in its scope is similar to the Stage 2 certification audit.
The auditor will comprehensively check compliance requirements of the standard and will closely look at the continuous improvement of management system.
After a positive completion of the re-certification audit a new certificate valid for 3 years will be issued for your management system.
Subsequent surveillance audits confirming the correct use of the certification and registration will occur after the conclusion of the re-certification audit.
