About us -

The EUROPEAN CERTIFICATION COUNCIL, certcouncil.eu for short, is an international certification body with partners in several European Union countries. certcouncil.eu certifies companies and processes in accordance with common standards such as ISO 9001-2015 or persons in accordance with ISO 17024. The members of the Council have also stipulated that all process evaluations and audit requirements for companies and persons must not only comply with the standards, but above all and at all times must demonstrate sustainable practical relevance, practicability and orientation towards real requirements.

certcouncil.eu thus defines a philosophy that moves away from purely theoretical to pragmatic audit environments that can and should be perceived in a comprehensible and understandable way by all those involved. Checks and inspections are indispensable, but they are only accepted and appreciated if they are recognisably meaningful and not just a mere formality.

Notwithstanding this self-defined, higher standard, certcouncil.eu naturally also fulfils all the requirements placed on a conformity assessment body in accordance with the applicable standards. The same applies with regard to the certification processes in accordance with ISO 17024 and ISO 9001.

certcouncil.eu differentiates on a small scale in order to ultimately achieve precisely targeted certifications. In the area of personal certifications in particular, we offer a broad, yet differentiated and realistic, personalised certification portfolio. The examination and control aspects are documented in the certification certificate as well as in the certificate report; tested qualifications are named clearly and comprehensibly. The certificates for all certification processes are issued regularly and on request in up to four languages (German, English, French and Spanish); other languages are possible in exceptional cases. This also underlines the standards that the EUROPEAN CERTIFICATION COUNCIL sets itself as an international certification body.

The European Certification Council sets high standards in terms of credibility and incorruptibility as well as professional requirements. The high level of expertise in the various testing segments is ensured by a committee of people with an international reputation, the Conseil d'Honneur de l'Ordre, Honorary Council.

It is worth noting that the appointed members hold these positions on an honorary basis, which is an unmistakable sign that incorruptibility and expertise cannot be bought.
