Information on certification in New Zealand
Standards New Zealand is not a certification body, so we cannot determine whether products comply with standards. This role is fulfilled by certification, testing and inspection bodies, which could be accredited by accreditation bodies.
If you need to have a product or service tested in an accredited laboratory you should visit the website of International Accreditation New Zealand (IANZ). The IANZ website has a directory of accredited laboratories including a description (scope) of the product or service testing capabilities of each accredited laboratory.
If you wish to obtain certification for a particular management system standard (e.g. ISO 9001, ISO 14001 or ISO 22000), or if your query is about specific product certification, you should contact an accredited certification body. Certification bodies are accredited by Joint Accreditation System of Australia and New Zealand (JAS-ANZ).
The JAS-ANZ website includes a register which identifies each accredited certification body including a description (scope) of the management system standards and/or product certification standards it is competent to certify against.
If you have a query about the certification status of a particular organisation, the JAS-ANZ directory has a Certified Body search function. The directory identifies organisations that have been independently certified or inspected by a JAS-ANZ accredited certification body and issued with an authentic certificate.
