RvA Accredits Certima BV for ISO 17065 for the applied scope of IFS, BRC and Global GAP schemes
After 12 years of developing our auditing and certification activities in food safety and quality under the brand and accreditation of another certification body, in 2018 we decided to go for our own accreditation and scheme owner recognition. We have chosen RvA (the Dutch Accreditaton Board) as one of the most prestigious accreditation organizations in the food sector. After an active process of preparation and a series of assessments throughout 2018, we finalized the main steps of accreditation for ISO 17065, for the scope of our application for the BRC, Global GAP and IFS schemes. On 24th January 2019 the Accreditation committee of RvA made the final positive decision for accreditation.
All certificates issued in the past 4 months, will be re-issued with the RvA logo. Here you can find our accreditation certificate and our listing on the RvA website.
Having this recognition in place, we will expand our auditing, certification and training services, to foster transparency and trust among the players in the food supply chain. Our ambitions for 2019 are to reach a broader group of customers on targeted markets throughout Europe where the value we add is needed and appreciated.
Thanks to our stakeholders, customers and team for their support and trust. We are looking forward to a mutually beneficial collaboration!
