About Certification




Certification by the NSI provides organizations with the assurance that their products and services consistently comply with certain predefined standards, customer requirements and applicable legislation. The NSI offers, both Product Certification (Standard and Premium Mark) and System and Persons Certification to the Namibian business community according to the requirements of ISO/IEC 17065, ISO/IEC 17021 and ISO/IEC 17024 respectively. 

System Certification involves an assessment of the management systems of an organization/business and certifies that these are sufficiently controlled to assure that the organization’s/business’ Quality Management System (ISO 9001) and Food Safety Management System (ISO 22000) objectives are met.

Namibian goods and services, that meet the requirements of the applicable Namibian and International standards, are awarded a Certificate of Conformity, bearing a specific and applicable NSI Certification Mark of Conformity. This mark tells the market place that a product has been found to meet all the requirements of the standards concerned and that the process used in making the product has been assessed to meet the requirements
