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 (e.g. ISO 22000, HACCP, and FSSC 22000) objectives are met.
Product certification involves inspection of facility, processes, personnel, product sampling and testing for compliance as per specific product standard. 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.
