The recertification or renewal of certification for a new three-year period includes the conclusion of a new contract. The volume of the renewal audit is usually smaller than that of the initial certification and this leads to a reduction in prices.
If you are not satisfied with the approach or prices of your current certification body, you can simply transfer your certification to us.
This is a free process that can save you a lot of money today!
The transfer of certification is the recognition of a valid certificate issued by another management system certification body, and on the basis of this recognition AQ Cert issues a new certificate.
AQ Cert transfers a certification only if the previous certificate has been issued under accreditation as part of an EA MLA or IAF MLA. If you are not sure whether your certificate meets these requirements, contact us and we will answer you. Organizations holding certificates that are not covered by such accreditation go through an initial certification procedure.
