KOMO Certification

Ten good reasons to certify:

In 5 steps to quality with KOMO certification:

  1. Step 1: If an assessment guideline (BRL) is already available for your product/process/service, go directly to step 2. If there is no BRL available for your product/process /service (you can check this at www.komo.nl), then you can contact a certification body. The latter draws up an Assessment Guideline, under the supervision of a Board of Experts in which all relevant market parties are represented. After acceptance by the Harmonization Committee Construction, the BRL is given the status to issue certificates.
  2. Step 2: If your product/process or system meets the requirements as laid down in the national assessment directive, you can submit an application for certification to the certification body.
  3. Step 3: After receiving your application, the certification body will conduct an admission audit to check whether your products/services and your internal quality control system meet the certification requirements.
  4. Step 4: If all requirements have been met, you will receive the requested KOMO certificate. This will be published on the website of the KOMO Foundation. The certificate is usually valid indefinitely. Only a certificate has to be re-established every 5 years.
  5. Step 5: Maintaining your internal quality control system plays a key role in certification. In addition, your certification body will visit your company (unannounced) several times a year. During the control visits, product samples are sometimes taken for examination by an independent laboratory. This way the quality of the product is monitored.
