Product certification

Product certification demonstrates that a product, process, or service meets set requirements of established international schemes.

Accreditation requirements are specified in ISO/IEC 17065 - Conformity assessment - Requirements for bodies certifying products, processes and services.

Owners of product certification schemes include industry associations, regulatory authorities and conformity assessment bodies. These owners can apply to JAS-ANZ for either public or private schemes.
