Conformity assessment involves a set of processes that show your product, service or system meets the requirements of a standard.
Undergoing the conformity assessment process has a number of benefits:
- It provides consumers and other stakeholders with added confidence.
- It gives your company a competitive edge.
- It helps regulators ensure that health, safety or environmental conditions are met.
The main forms of conformity assessment are testing, certification, and inspection.
In addition, ISO has a committee, CASCO, that develops standards and addresses issues related to conformity assessment
