Assessment & Certification of Management Systems
The core business of International Certifications is to assess, certify and register companies’ management systems to international standards, national standards, guidelines and codes of practices as appropriate. By achieving certification an organization is demonstrating that they are committed to complying with their chosen standard(s) and have invited an independent external third party to verify by way of audit that they do indeed comply with the appropriate industry standard. The benefits of management system certification for your organization are endless. Check our most common certification programs that we offer. Please contact your local office to discuss your assessment and certification requirements.

GHG Validation and Verification
As regulated and voluntary carbon markets expand, organizations wishing to participate in these markets face a need for independent third-party assurance over their greenhouse gas (GHG) assertions in order to establish carbon offsets or submit verified inventory reports (VIR) to not only clients and regulators, but also stakeholders.
Organizations seeking to make GHG assertions that are internationally recognised should consider the following references:
- ISO 14064-1 - Specification with guidance at the organization level for quantification and reporting of greenhouse gas emissions and removals.
- ISO 14064-2 - Specification with guidance at the project level for quantification and reporting of greenhouse gas emission reductions and removal enhancements.
- GHG Protocol Corporate Standard – Provides standards and guidance for companies and other organizations preparing a GHG emissions inventory.
- GHG Protocal Project Protocol – Project Protocol is a comprehensive, policy-neutral accounting tool for quantifying the greenhouse gas benefits of climate change mitigation projects.

Electrical Testing and Tagging (NZ Only)
Damaged or faulty electrical equipment can lead to a serious injury or death through electrocution or can cause fire which would damage and destroy your company assets and work environment. Implementing an effective safety inspection, testing and tagging program will give you peace of mind in the knowledge that both your people and your business are protected.
International Certifications offer a comprehensive Electrical Testing and Tagging program that ensures that our client’s people and assets are safeguarded. Our Electrical Testing and Tagging program is fully compliant with the AS/NZS 3760. Appliances are inspected for damage, and various measurements are made to the appliances’ earth continuity, insulation, polarity and physical condition. After testing has determined a pass, a tag is attached to the appliance lead indicating when it was tested, when the next test is due, and a tracking code. Retesting intervals of equipment can vary depending of the environment where the equipment is located. The standard requires that testing is allowed to be done by anyone deemed competent by training or experience and does not require to be a Registered Electrician, we disagree with this and only use competent Registered Electricians to service our clients.
Let us manage your Electrical Testing and Tagging program then you can focus on your core business activities.
