IAF Cert Search

IAF Cert Search

The IAF, in their endeavour to stamp out fraudulent ISO certificates have created an online database for all Accredited Certificates.  Not all Certification Bodies approve of this approach, but QA-Cert welcome the development as it creates an open and transparent certification process.

The IAFCertSearch database is an exclusive global database for accredited management system certifications.

Anyone can view the status of ISO Accredited certificates and you can create a watchlist of those common suppliers and monitor the status of their approval.

As well as uploading the status of our certificates on our website, we also upload them to the IAF Cert Search database.

International Accreditation Forum

Accreditation is the independent evaluation of conformity assessment bodies against recognised standards to ensure their impartiality and competence. Through the application of national and international standards, government, procurers and consumers can have confidence in the calibration and test results, inspection reports and certifications provided.

Accreditation bodies are established in many countries with the primary purpose of ensuring that conformity assessment bodies are subject to oversight by an authoritative body.

Accreditation bodies, which have been evaluated by peers as competent, sign arrangements that enhance the acceptance of products and services across national borders, thereby creating a framework to support international trade through the removal of technical barriers.

These arrangements are managed by the International Accreditation Forum (IAF), in the fields of management systems, products, services, personnel and other similar programmes of conformity assessment, and the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC), in the field of laboratory and inspection accreditation.
