The certification process
Certification is a voluntary process where by a business can have its products or services inspected by a certification body such as Ecocert. Certification is awarded, provided that the products or services comply with international and/or local standards. Certification is valid for a specified time period, during which the certifying body continues to monitor the clients’ activities to ensure continued compliance.
Ecocert, creating innovative standards
Aside from certifying in accordance with international standards (e.g. EC, NOP, JAS), Ecocert has also developed private standards which contain extremely rigorous environmental and social criteria. These specifications attest to Ecocert's capacity for innovation. Ecocert draws up each standard in conjunction with representatives from each sector involved - professionals, consumers and users.
Since 2000, Ecocert has encouraged the rise of new business trends by developing private standards.
