How to Get Certified | Transfer to NQA | NQA

Not all certification bodies are the same - at NQA we believe our clients deserve value for money and great service. That means certification audits that help to improve your organization as well as meeting the requirements of your chosen standard.

“We recently transferred our certification from BSI to NQA in line with other group divisions. The ease of transfer was both seamless and effortless.“ DEM Manufacturing, April 2017. 

Benefits of Transfer

  • COST SAVINGS - there is no cost for transferring and ongoing fees will be competitive with no hidden charges

  • OPPORTUNITIES FOR IMPROVEMENT - a fresh assessment approach can revitalise your audits and identify new opportunities to improvement

  • INTEGRATED CERTIFICATION - combining multiple certifications is a more efficient and effective use of budget and resources

  • MULTI-SITE CERTIFICATION - bringing separately certified sites under one certification if more manageable and cost effective

The transfer process

You can transfer accredited certification to another accredited certification body. This can be for independent or integrated management systems certifications for single or multiple sites.

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 that the process for transferring IATF 16949 and AS9100 certification differs slightly - please contact us for details.
