ISO 22716 certification

When all requirements of the ISO 22716 standard are met, and it can be so proven by internal audits, the organization may proceed to an external audit. This external audit should be carried out by a third party – accredited certification body.


Certification will be carried out in 2 Stages. Stage 1 covers document review and Stage 2 checks the functioning of management system within the company.


During the ISO 22716 certification the auditor will focus on reviewing the procedures, technology and production environment and will check if established management goals and objectives are measureable and achievable.


The Auditor will also check if the work methods that are employed are in accordance with procedures and the established goals and appropriate records are kept.


After positively completing the certification  the Auditor shall recommend that a certificate for ISO 22716 is issued and  registered.
The next steps are surveillance audits which are aimed to assure that the management system continuous to be effective, is being improved and still in compliance with ISO 22716 standard.
