The purpose of Product Certification is to guarantee that a product meets the required standards following Conformity Tests and an ISO 9001 audit of the manufacturer's or distributor's Quality Management System. Once certified, products may carry a quality mark. Production Quality is subsequently monitored by means of Tests and regular Audits.
