Certification of businesses
acpo is an organisation that deals with territorial label and citizen business certification. The certification process is based as much on territorial labels and the degree of citizenship demonstrated by businesses as it is on ISO 9001 – 'quality management' standards and ISO 14001 'environmental management' standards, along with other standards such as the OHSAS 18001 / ISO 45001 'occupational health and safety management' standards, and ISO 22000 'food safety management systems' standards among others.
acpo provides certification services for these management systems in accordance with ISO 17'021 "Bodies providing audit and certification of management systems". acpo has been duly assessed and found to comply with the requirements of the international standard ISO 17021:2015 by ISAS and has therefore been accredited as a certification body (see attached certificate of accreditation).
Through the implementation of modern, high-performance IT systems that streamline the customer relationship and through the active involvement of customers in the certification process through self-evaluation, we are in a position to be able to deliver a range of services in a more competitive price segment.
