External quality surveillance

In accordance with its Certification Guideline, the European Certification Body carries out periodical external quality surveillance audits at the manufacturing plants during which it is ascertained whether production is based on the approved Technical Documentation according to the ECBS certificate. In addition, the auditor ascertains whether the manufacturing company uses a certified quality management system according to ISO 9001 (EN ISO 9001) as a basis of production.
