Certification may or may not be the best course for you to take as a supplier or a customer. You should assess your return on investment with respect to the time and money spent on doing irrelevant things that matters little. You should take a serious and good look at the product pricing impact. You should consider having a genuinely and properly implemented product safety system versus simply obtaining a certificate for display. Remember that the certificate is often side stepped (even by the requesting customers), especially in the event of undesirable product outcomes.
- What is the consistency track record of maintaining the supposedly achieved results?
- Could the same results be achieved through established science and industry best practices and without the certification?
