Management system certification (ISO 9001, 140001, 450001, MASE, 50001, 19443)

Management system certification enables companies to meet standards requirements and demonstrate the performance of their organisations and their commitment to continuous improvement in preventing the risks associated with their activities (ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 45001, ISO 50001, ISO 27001, EN 9100).


Product certification

Today's consumers are faced with a very wide range of products and sometimes find it difficult to make a choice.

Product certification certifies to customers that the products they are going to use comply with a strict set of standards, a guarantee of quality and safety (CB Scheme, Hyperbaric, rail, etc.).

Certification engineering

Apave Certification can help you create non-regulatory certifications to meet all your non-standard requirements. Thanks to the development of a unique reference system, you will be able to provide a response tailored to your sector of activity.

Maintain health and safety at work

Today's companies face increasingly complex and evolving health and safety challenges. To meet these challenges, it is essential to develop a culture of risk prevention within the company.

At Apave, we are convinced that taking health and safety at work into account is a performance driver for companies. Reducing the number of work-related accidents and illnesses has a direct impact on the absenteeism rate and the direct and indirect costs of employees absent from the company. Apave can help you integrate the health and safety dimension as a corporate value, in the same way as production or quality.
