The 6 Steps to Certification
To achieve StandardsMark™ certification, you need to take the following steps:
1. Product Standards or Specifications
Determine what standards or specifications are essential for your product. In many cases, a product may be required to meet a number of standards or specifications; in others, a minimum level of assurance may be required. Visit infostore.saiglobal.com to obtain standards.
2. Does Your Product Conform?
Before applying for certification, you should make an assessment of whether the product is likely to meet the standard. This assessment may be internal or external.
3. Submit an Application
You must submit detailed information about the range of products for which you are seeking certification. For further information refer to the Product Certification Guide to Applicants, which is available from our account management team.
4. Submit Your Product for Testing
After SAI Global acknowledges your application, we will prepare a Type Test program and your product can then be tested by a recognized laboratory (normally NATA-accredited or equivalent). SAI Global technical staff will assess your product’s design and performance compliance against the nominated standard or specification.
5. Manufacturing Site Quality Plan Audit
SAI Global’s audit scheduling team will contact applicants to arrange a mutually agreeable audit date for the nominated manufacturer/s.
6. Certification and Logos
Certification is issued upon successful audit and review of type testing. Certified products can then be released from the manufacturer. The StandardsMark™ logo may be used in product promotion with approval by SAI Global.
