What should you look for when comparing offers and contracts?
The most important thing! What is the accreditation under which the certification service is offered? In general, when certificates is required by business partner, governmental entity or a EU programme, it is taken for granted, that they are accreditated under EA MLA / IAF MLA. Certificates that are with no accreditation, or are under “free/voluntary” (i.e. fake) accredtitation are not acceptable.
Are travel expenses included and if not, what will they be?
Are there additional fees beyond the base price?
Are there any penalties and other clauses that harm you?
What do not include certification prices
Certification prices do not include the preparation for certification, or in other words, the certification preparation consulting service, which almost always precedes the certification itself.
No certification organization has the right to prepare (including the construction, implementation or internal audit of the management system) of a client and then certify it, because it would compromise the certificate.
No certification body has the right to oblige its clients to work with a specific consulting firm for the same reason.
