How does CertSmart work?
The CertSmart process features five easy steps that are designed to provide you with a simple and flexible solution for your ISO 9001 goals.
You’ll receive access to a CertSmart personal dashboard where you can upload documents, data and information relating to your Quality Management System (QMS) before your Stage 1 audit, which will be performed remotely. Your Stage 2 audit will be completed onsite, and once approval is given, you’ll receive your ISO 9001 certification.
Simply upload your current certificate and your most recent audit reports to your personal dashboard and the CertSmart team will do the rest. CertSmart makes the transfer process simple and easy.
