How does certification take place?

Information meeting
First, we hold an information meeting with you in order to determine the scope and area of application for the certification in a prudent manner. This forms the basis for a differentiated offer.

Audit stage 1 – readiness assessment

The actual certification process starts in phase 2. The objective of stage 1 of the audit is to assess readiness for the certification on site. The results are documented in a written report.

Audit stage 2 – certification audit

The audit (stage 2) is also conducted at the company premises. The aim of this is to evaluate the implementation and effectiveness of the ISMS.

Awarding of certificate and monitoring

After a positive certification decision, a certificate is issued with a validity of three years. During these three years, two monitoring audits are performed at planned intervals, in which the application and effectiveness of the ISMS is assessed through random checks.
