Steps to Transferring Your Certification

There is a simple 5 step process to transferring your certification to NQA and it can take as little as 1
week. Follow these steps to ensure a quick and easy transfer to NQA:

  1. Contact our friendly sales staff who will help to collect the information required for a transfer. 

  2. NQA will issue you with a quotation for your transfer and ongoing certification.

  3. Once the quote is accepted a Pre-Transfer Review will take place to transfer your certificate. This will be offsite unless you have outstanding non-conformities which have not been closed by your current certification body.

  4. NQA will issue a new certificate which is aligned to your existing certification dates.

  5. NQA will inform your current certification body of your transfer.

Please note: some Certification Bodies may charge a cancellation fee, so please check your terms and conditions carefully prior to making any decision.

The transfer process does have a few formalities which maintain the integrity of the certification during transfer. We'll need a copy of your current valid certificate of registration and latest audit report(s) to start the process.

On successful completion of the transfer we issue an NQA certificate of registration with the same validity as your previous certificate. You will then receive audits on an ongoing basis to make sure your systems remain compliant. 

Please note: hat the process for transferring IATF 16949 and Aerospace certification differs slightly - please contact us for details.
