INITIAL CERTIFICATION PROOR TO THE ECM CERTIFICATION UNDER THE EUROPEAN DIRECTIVE
Before issuing the certification of entities in charge of the maintenance, CERTIFER performs an initial documentary assessment. If everything is in its own place, CERTIFER performs on-site audits & inspections to check the good application of maintenance processes.
If the opinion is positive, a certificate of ECM, on maintenance activities will be issued for a duration of 5 years.
During the certificate’s period of validity, CERTIFER will perform an on-site audit & inspection on the ECM’s site every year.
