Confirmation by third parties

The shifting role of certifications

The accredited certification of management systems has evolved into an integral component of our economy.

Just like the application of these standards, independent reviews by third parties, i. e. certification, has become an important factor in establishing transparency and trust in the minds of customers and other interested parties.

As part of the project “Quality 2030”, which was carried out by Quality Austria and the Institute for Integrated Quality Design of the Johannes Kepler University (JKU) in Linz, we examined the role that certifications will play going forward.
