After aligning the procecess to the standard requirements an initial audit is carried out to assess whether the company fulfilled all the requirements and only then, receives the certification. Once certified, the company is audited regularly by this board, that checks whether the standard is being maintained regarding the traceability of the documents related to the production process, internal controls and testing in own laboratory. Once compliance with the standard and product traceability is proved, certification is maintained.
