Third-party certification is widely recognized as playing an integral role in helping companies demonstrate their environmental, sustainability, and safety achievements to their customers and stakeholders. As a certification body, the question we are most frequently asked is what qualifies us to do this work.
Heading up SCS’ Quality Assurance Team, I liken my team’s services to providing a “safety net” for our company’s reputation. We assure that SCS’ operations run uninterrupted by supporting multiple accreditations in good standing and ensuring that our clients receive the most scientifically rigorous, impartial, efficient, and high-quality assessments from our auditors.
What is not immediately visible to our certification and audit clients is the complex, arduous work happening behind the scenes to safeguard professionalism and the rigor of the services we provide and upon which they depend. In short, a multi-level oversight system is employed to demonstrate our competence and fitness as a certification body.
