The IAF’s Database Management Committee (DMC); represented by the Accreditation Bodies – including ANAB, Certification Bodies and Industry; has developed a global database to house and provide an authoritative source for validating accredited certifications issued all over the world.
Development is currently underway of the branded “IAF CertSearch” global database and, upon launch, will be accessed through the domain iafcertsearch.org.
Historically, verifying the validity of an accredited management system certification was limited and often impractical as there was no central location. The inefficiency of this process allowed for misuse and diluted the value of accredited certification. IAF CertSearch aims to provide a single location of all accredited management system certifications issued by accredited Certification Bodies, like TRC.
The IAF CertSearch is a voluntary database with early commitments and will launch with greater than 700,000 certifications in the database.
