Vaccinate your business with the right Certification
Certifying a Compliance Management System (CMS) - as well as many other systems and procedures - is a fundamental added value and can be a useful tool for an organization to achieve greater reliability: being verified and validated by impartial accredited experts avoids the risk of self-referentiality and provides authoritative confirmation that what has been prepared and implemented actually meets the necessary requirements.
Undergoing CMS Certification process signals a clear indication that an organization desires to provide its services in the most effective and serious way, by virtue of its decision to voluntarily submit to third-party evaluation. This:
• encourages public confidence and enhances a strong effect of external credibility;
• mitigate the legal responsibility of the organization by the accountability and transparent aspects of the process;
• sustains its continual improvement through the assessment of system effectiveness, efficiency, and competence.
Any Certification process entails an audit, and requires the candidate for certification to have or acquire adequate preparation and competence.
Audit is a documented process for obtaining, verifying, and evaluating records to determine the extent to which the set of requirements is fulfilled and, in an ordinary context, each organization can determine the audit cycle that it deems most appropriate for its characteristics.
In the present epidemic context, due to the potential life-threatening severe consequences of any non-compliance to requirements of our Standards, a specific simplified audit has been set up by EIFEC.
Besides, considering the circumstances, we have also activated a proper remote audit mode, to be carried out online using mobile or desktop applications with the same effectiveness as an onsite audit.
Audits shall be conducted based on the specific guidelines and requirements for accredited certification bodies EIFEC ES2001.06:HBY/HER/AUDIT, and could be joint audit sessions of two or more auditing experts or organizations so to evaluate the CMS in relation to the specific competencies required by the Health emergency context.
At the end, an official audit report will be released.
The determination of the audit program and any subsequent adjustments shall consider the size of the organization and the scope and complexity of its CMS, as well as the level of management system effectiveness and the results of any previous audits, if any.
The available Certification process applies to
the Health Emergency Risk Compliance Management System (HER-CMS) and
the Sanitization Service Providers Compliance Management System (SSP-CMS).
This Certification is provided also in a simplified version specially designed for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) for both the CMSs, so to apply in full our philosophy, which is: "Compliance for all".
In addition, due to the emergency and urgency to demonstrate an organization's commitment to implement this specific CMS, the Interim HER-CMS process activation Certification has been developed and created.
As for the necessary sanitization measures, EIFEC can provide all organizations with a specific registration mechanism aimed at satisfying the requirement of sanitization activities tracking. It is available at the ECR - EIFEC Compliance Register (Brussels), it's activated during epidemic periods and entails an enhanced Complaint process.
Finally, a Training Attendance Certificate will be released at the end of the online course prepared and issued by EIFEC (in cooperation with the University of Turin and other institutions and experts) about how to suitably manage the necessary cleaning and sanitizing activities within its own living and working spaces.
