What is the SA8000 standard?
How does an SA8000 audit proceed?
DQS certifies worldwide according to SA8000 on behalf of the international certification network IQNet. Prior to the actual audit, you can determine the maturity level of your management system online with the so-called Social Fingerprint® Self-Assessment. After placing the order, we offer you an optional pre-audit.
The actual certification audit takes place on site, in the local language and taking into account national labor laws.
After a successful audit you will receive your certificate with a validity of three years. Surveillance audits take place annually. After three years the recertification audit takes place.
With the certificate you can use the registered trademark "IQNet" as a worldwide recognized synonym for quality and you will be registered with SAAS as a certified site.
