CERTIFICATION AND ACCREDITATION
Customers appreciate quality, and this can be crucial when deciding whether or not to remain loyal to a brand or supplier. Accreditation, certification and industry recognised awards play a vital role in the control of quality and, ultimately, in raising the value of the brand or supplier in the eyes of customers. Accreditation, certification and awards involve assessment by trained SATRA auditors and help to maximise performance and quality of product and process. All can raise brand and product profile by association with the globally respected SATRA brand or other industry recognised marks.
SATRA is a European Notified Body for the CE marking of products under the EU Directive on personal protective equipment (PPE) and the EU Construction Products Regulation (305/2011).
SATRA also offers a range of quality certification schemes for various industries, including the SATRA Quality Mark, SATRA Sole Bond Award and SATRA Diamond Furniture Certification.
