Q4. Why has it been created?

02 Nov 2021

Businesses and Governments are demanding greater transparency across organizations and supply chains. Accredited certifications make it possible for businesses and governments to develop compliant supply chains, however their ability to validate certifications and to find and trade with certified entities has been restricted. Due to the lack of a global technology solution for validation of accreditation, this led to misuse of accredited certification, undermining its value.
For the first time IAF CertSearch has made it possible to have representation of the entire accredited network including Accreditation Bodies, Accredited Certification Bodies coupled with the ability to validate individual certifications held by organizations certified by a certification body who is accredited by an IAF Accreditation Body member.
The platform has been designed to be compliant with all international privacy and data regulations and structured to ensure that uploaded data remains secure and will not be sold at any time.
