Understanding ISO Certifications

ISO certifications signify a commitment to maintaining high-quality products and safe, productive working environments. From quality management to occupational health and safety standards, ISO certifications serve as vital benchmarks for businesses. Moreover, specialized industries like automotive, telecommunications, aerospace, and food sectors have tailored certifications to meet specific industry requirements.

Certification Standards

The certification process for management systems follows a generic approach consistent with ISO management systems standards. Some of the standards adhering to this process, guided by Annex SL, include:

  • ISO 9001 – Quality Management Systems
  • ISO 14001 – Environmental Management
  • ISO 45001 – Occupational Health & Safety
  • ISO 50001 – Energy Management
  • ISO 27001 – Information Security
  • ISO 22301 – Business Continuity Management
  • And more

While minor differences exist for specific standards like AS9100 and IATF 16949, we provide detailed explanations during your application journey.

ISO Certification Process

ICB’s ISO certification process encompasses the following steps:


You begin by filling out an application form (known as a Quote Request Form at ICB) to provide us with insights into your company’s complexity and requirements. Based on this information, we define the scope of assessment and propose certification solutions tailored to your needs.


Upon agreement with the proposal, assessments are scheduled with an ICB Assessor. This stage comprises two mandatory visits forming the Initial Certification Audit. Your management system must be fully operational for at least three months and undergo a management review and full cycle of internal audits.

Initial Certification Audit — Stage 1

This assessment confirms your organization’s readiness for full assessment. It involves a documentation review at your management system center. The assessor verifies information submitted during the application, confirms compliance with standards, assesses the implementation status of your management system(s), and evaluates legal compliance.

Initial Certification Audit — Stage 2

This assessment ensures full compliance with the chosen standard(s) in practice. The assessor documents system compliance using objective evidence, conducts sample audits of defined processes and activities, and evaluates off-site activities if applicable. Any non-conformities or improvement opportunities are reported.


Following a successful two-stage audit, a certification decision is made. If positive, certification to the required standard is issued by ICB, along with hard and soft copies of the certificate.

Validity and Maintenance

Certification is valid for three years and maintained through annual surveillance audits and a three-yearly recertification audit. Surveillance audits ensure ongoing compliance with standards and encourage continual improvement.

Adaptability and Support

ICB understands that businesses evolve over time. We provide options to adapt your scope, standards, or management system to suit your changing requirements. Our collaborative partnership approach ensures certification aligns with your business goals.

Consultant Assistance

While ISO certification can be pursued independently, hiring an experienced consultant can streamline the process and address potential challenges. Consultants offer valuable insights and guidance to ensure certification success.
