For the third time in a row, GFA has been confirmed in the annual quality assessment by the accreditation body of the FSC System (Assurance Services International) to apply the highest quality in the implementation of certification services. The evaluation showed that the quality of the internal management system is far above the average of all FSC Certification Bodies.
On behalf of the FSC, ASI controls whether the certification bodies meet the requirements of FSC certification. The assessment procedure is carried out in several audits distributed throughout the year at the Certification Bodie´s headquarters, at cooperation partners and in the form of witness audits at the Certification Bodie´s customers. The quality of the certification procedures and the audit implementation is checked. Strict guidelines are applied, which can lead to a suspension of the certifier concerned in the event of serious non compliances regarding the FSC accreditation requirements.
