How to Transfer Your ISO Certificate to a New Certification Body

If you’re looking to change certification bodies for your ISO certificate, you may be worried about the process being complicated or time-consuming. However, with the right steps and preparation, transferring your ISO certificate can be a smooth and straightforward process. Here are some tips to help you transfer your ISO certificate with ease.

Research and select a new certification body.

The first step in transferring your ISO certificate is to research and select a new certification body. Look for a certification body who are UKAS Accredited (why not read our article on the importance of UKAS Accredited Certification?) and has experience in your industry. You can also ask for recommendations from colleagues or industry associations. Once you have selected a new certification body, contact them to discuss the transfer process and any requirements they may have. It’s important to ensure that the new certification body can provide the same scope of certification as your current one.

You will need to provide the necessary documentation to the new certification body. This may include your current ISO certificate, audit reports, and any other relevant documentation. It’s important to ensure that all documentation is up-to-date and accurate to avoid any delays in the transfer process. Your new certification body may also require additional documentation or information, so be sure to communicate with them regularly to ensure a smooth transfer. Please note that if you have current open major non-conformities it will not be possible to transfer until they are closed off.

Notify your current certification body of your intent to transfer.

Before you can transfer your ISO certificate to a new certification body, you must notify your current certification body of your intent to transfer. This is typically done by submitting a written request to your current certification body, outlining your reasons for transferring, and providing details of your new certification body.

Receive your new ISO certificate from the new certification body.

Once the transfer is agreed and completed, you will receive your new ISO certificate. This certificate will be valid for the remaining duration of your current certification period. It’s important to note that you should not destroy your old certificate until you have received your new one. Once you have your new certificate, you can begin using it to demonstrate your organisation’s commitment to continuous improvement. Congratulations on successfully transferring your ISO certification!
