ADDITIONAL SERVICES

In addition to certification audits, Metrosert offers all organizations the opportunity for supplementary evaluation of their management system. A company may find it has a need for such an evaluation if it is developing its management system and desires to obtain an expert opinion on whether it conforms to the management system standard or other regulatory documents. An evaluation is not obligatory but helps prevent errors of a general nature from occurring in the management system and provides a sense of assurance regarding the effectiveness of the management process.
