  • as a notified body, UNI-CERT does not certify another notified body for its management system;

  • neither management nor the personnel of Uni-Cert have no commercial, financial or other influence on the outcome of the conformity assessment activities;
  • all interested parties have access to the services provided;
  • the organisation does not make immoderate financial or other demands;
  • the procedures guiding the organisation are non-discriminatory;
  • UNI-CERT does not offer or provide the conformity assessment activities as linked with the activities of an organisation that provides consultancy;
  • UNI-CERT shall take actions to correct claims by any consultancy organisation stating or implying that the conformity assessment activities would be simpler, easier, faster or less expensive if UNI-CERT were used.
  • UNI-CERT, as a notified body, does not imply that there would be specific conditions of conformity assessment if a specified consultancy organisation were involved;
