The assessment and certification of a management system by an independent, competent third party, such as DQS, generates valuable benefits for the client. A DQS certificate will serve as evidence for a suitable and effective management system with the capability to continuously meet customer expectations as well as regulatory and statutory requirements.
During an assessment qualified and experienced assessors review the management system and its processes for ongoing suitability and effectiveness in light of changing markets and environment. By identifying improvement potential, assessors enhance the organization’s ability to meet established goals and confidence on the client and the certified management system, which has been assessed and certified to recognized standards and specifications.
