About Us

CBS Certification Services is an England-based, fully accredited third-party International ‎Certification Body, specializing in management systems certification, training and auditing.‎
Operating since 2008, CBS audits and certifies thousands of organisations around the world and ‎have built a great reputation for first-class service, market-leading pricing packages, and ease of ‎use for our clients.‎
The CBS Register is used by a wide range of people and organisations, including those:‎
• assessing tenders
• checking credentials throughout the market supply chain
• Confirming if an organisation and person has been certified by a CBS Certification body.‎
We also use the register as a tool to better understand trends in the world of certification and we ‎publish reports for certifiers to keep them up-to-date.‎

Management of Impartiality
Impartiality is not only an accreditation requirement for a Third Party Certification Body, it is an ‎absolute necessity to maintain the credibility of the Audit and Certification Process. CBS ‎maintains a culture and professional environment (through formal and informal meetings and ‎discussions) that stresses the expectation that staff and auditors will act in the wider interest of ‎promoting quality culture in auditee organisations and helping in enhancement of the credibility ‎of audits and certification processes by ensuring total impartiality in their actions. As a preventive ‎measure, importance of impartiality is emphasized during on-site evaluation of auditors during ‎their first audit on behalf of CBS.‎
CBS has identified, analyzed, documented and incorporated controls on the following ‎possibilities for conflict of interests arising from provision of certification and its relationship:‎
Conflict of Interests arising from Provision of Certification Services:‎
Self-interest threats and their safeguards
CBS– Financial Self-interest: The process of auditor selection, auditing and certification ‎decision is carried out in a way which ensures that the issue of ‘Certificate of Approval’ is based ‎upon objective evidence of conformity with the relevant criteria. The entire certification ‎processes (including internal audits and management reviews) are carried out under the close ‎supervision of management and is being reviewed at least once in a year by the independent CBS ‎Advisory Board. CBS management and its employees will not exert undue financial conditions, ‎practice any form of discrimination or other conditions upon applicant or certified organisation ‎that may be detrimental to the reputation of CBS.‎

Auditors – Self-interest: CBS ensured through the in-depth review of the CV’s of auditors and ‎their current affiliations that they don’t have any financial interest (shares etc.) in the clients ‎being audited by them. Also, through signed Conflict of Interest Agreement it is made ‎mandatory for all auditors to reveal all situations of potential conflict of interests. In such ‎situations, it is ensured that the concerned auditor is not included in audit team or certification ‎decision process. Should an auditor of CBS be found to be exerting undue financial or other ‎conditions upon the auditee organisation then appropriate disciplinary action shall be taken ‎against that auditor.‎
Self – review threats and their safeguards
Our documented system ensures that the decision for certification, complaint, appeal etc. will be ‎taken by some body that was not associated with the related certification, complaint, appeal etc.‎
CBS direct employees are prohibited from engaging in management system consultancy ‎activities, which includes, ‘Participation in an active manner in the development of a management ‎system to be assessed by, for example: preparing or producing manuals, handbook or procedures; ‎participating in the decision making process regarding management system matters; giving ‎specific advice towards the development and implementation of management systems for ‎eventual certification/registration.‎
All audit staff are prohibited from participating in the Audit of any organisation to which they ‎have given assistance in document preparation, consultancy, in-house training, internal auditing, ‎or where they have any financial or commercial interest for a minimum period of 2 years prior to ‎the date of application of the organisation for certification.‎
All auditors associated with CBS are prohibited from conducting internal audits to its certified ‎clients. Also, CBS will not undertake third party certification of management system of an ‎organisation, where it has provided internal auditing services in the last two years.‎
Subcontracted auditors will not be involved in any certification activities (including audits) with ‎any clients of the subcontracted auditor or his employer.‎
Certification activities for a client shall not be undertaken by CBS within two years of presenting ‎an in-house course. Even after two years, it will be ensured that the trainer(s) involved in ‎imparting training are not selected as an auditor(s) for that particular organisation.‎
As a fully independent certification body, CBS is not linked to any management system ‎consultancy organisation and will take immediate action to correct inappropriate claims by any ‎management system consultancy organisation stating or implying that certification would be ‎simpler, easier, faster or less expensive if CBS were used. Similarly, CBS will not promote any ‎management system consultancy organisation by stating or implying that certification would be ‎simpler, easier, faster or less expensive if a specified consultancy organisation were used.‎
Familiarity (or trust) threats ‎
If CBS determines that a CBS auditor has an unacceptable familiarity with a CBS client then ‎CBS will change auditors (for at least one audit) after completion of one certification cycle to ‎eliminate or reduce familiarity threat that may arise because of long-standing professional ‎relationship (by virtue of conducting audits) with an auditee.‎
As addressed above threat due to familiarity because of long-standing personal relationship will ‎be eliminated by not including that auditor(s) in audit team or certification decision process for ‎that particular organisation where such relationship is established.‎
Intimidation threats
In relation to disagreement on findings being identified during audit, CBS auditors are ‎encouraged to raise that particular issue in the audit report, asking auditee to complain or appeal ‎to CBS against that finding(s) if they wish.‎
Similarly, CBS will not be coerced by any auditee or other interested parties with a fear of being ‎replaced while carrying out certification activities. CBS is committed and determined to carry ‎out its certification activities without any fear of litigations, replacement etc. However, auditee ‎are made aware of the appeal process, in case they are not satisfied with any of the decision ‎being taken by CBS.‎
Competition threats : CBS ensures that subcontracted technical auditors are selected after ‎carefully scrutinizing any chances of conflict to eliminate or minimize any competitive threat ‎between auditee and auditor.‎
Conflict of Interests arising from relationship: ‎
CBS have determined the potential areas of conflict of interest due to any relationship based on ‎ownership, governance, management, personnel, shared resources, finances, contracts, marketing ‎and payment of a sales commission or other inducement for the referral of new clients that could ‎threaten the impartiality of its certification activities – refer to the Annual Relationship Analysis ‎Matrix.‎
If any relationship poses an unacceptable threat to impartiality, CBS will not undertake a related ‎certification assignment.‎
CBS will not certify any other certification body for its management system certification ‎activities.‎
CBS will take action to respond to any threats to its impartiality arising from the actions of other ‎persons, bodies or organisations.
