Understanding the Management System Certification Lifecycle

Certification of a Management System is awarded to an organization, by a Certifying Body (in this case FPG), for complying with and conforming to all the requirements specified in the published ISO Management System Standard that is associated with the ISO Management System implemented by the organization.  The table below clarifies this criterion for each of the ISO Management Systems for which FPG offers and provides audit and certification services.

The Management System Certification Lifecycle is a three-year cycle.  The first year of the cycle commences upon successfully certified completion of the management system implementation.  This is known as the Initial Certification for the management system.  Initial Certification is also required when a new version of the Management System Standard (MSS) is released and activated by ISO.  ISO typically grants a two (2) – three (3) year transition grace period before they deactivate the prior version and it is deemed non-certifiable. The second and third year of the cycle are known as the Surveillance phase.  This is where the certified management system is surveilled for continued compliance, conformity, improvement, and growth in organizational maturity.  The year following the completed Surveillance phase, the organization’s implemented Management System must be Re-Certified to begin the next three-year cycle.  The diagram below demonstrates the iterative nature of the Management System Certification Lifecycle.
