Product Certification Programmes
  • Some of the commonly used product certification
    programmes employed is as follows
  • Type testing - Where the samples of the product
    are tested for conformity to a particular
    standard specification.
  • This gives no assurance of ongoing conformity.
  • Type testing with surveillance of both market and
    production samples
  • This gives an assurance of the product quality at
    the point of production and the market for
    ongoing conformity to asses whether the
    conformity is affected during distribution and to
    resolve any non conformities.
  • Type testing and assessment of the quality system
    with surveillance of the quality system ,
    production and the market
  • This system provides significant flexibility for
    the conduct of ongoing surveillance so that it
    gives room to the extent to which the three
    elements can be adjusted for a given situation.
