What is accreditation?
Accreditation is an independent assessment that ensures certification bodies have the technical competence and integrity of impartiality to deliver credible certification services. This is essential to building confidence and trust in certification.
Definition : Accreditation is the official validation or recognition of an assessment body's proficiency, ethics, trustworthiness and independence to take on certification assessment activities. For certificates to be reputable and accepted worldwide, accreditation of third party certification bodies (although not always mandatory) is the strong preference of many suppliers.
Gabriel Registrar believes in the integrity of standards and rigour of the certification process. That's why it's our policy to achieve accreditation for our services wherever possible.

Impartiality is a fundamental principle of accredited certification. This means that certification decisions are based solely on objective evidence of conformity and are not influenced by any other interests.
We take potential conflicts of interest very seriously and ensure that impartiality is not compromised at any time. In particular, we ensure that, irrespective of which consultancy may have been employed to implement or maintain a client's management system:
- certification will not be simpler, easier, faster or less expensive
- certification decisions will be based solely on the objective evidence
