ADVANTAGES OF THE CERTIFICATION

ADVANTAGES OF THE CERTIFICATION

The main advantage that the manufacturer has in obtaining a certification is to demonstrate the quality assurance of its product. The certificate vouches that the tests and quality controls have been carried out, so the product is in compliance with the environmental and safety requirements.

For consumers, the certification allows access to unbiased product information, which helps improve their choices and decision making abilities at the time of purchase.

In addition, certification serves as a regulatory mechanism for governments to control the circulation of products that may affect consumer and environmental health and safety.
