Use of Certification Marks and Certification Statements

Use of Certification Marks and Certification Statements

When a company achieves certification with World Certification Services Ltd it is entitled to use the appropriate certification marks (logo) on stationery and marketing material.

These marks are provided by World Certification Services with your Certificate of Registration.  It is important that the use of these marks is correct and in accordance with WCS Logo Requirements.

A certified company cannot make false certification statements or use the logo in a way that could mislead any interested parties. Examples of this could be:

  • Using the logo on a website that includes multi sites when the certification only covers one site
  • Using a logo on a website that show services provided that are not included in the certification

WCS has created a “Use of Logos” documents in order to avoid the incorrect use of certification marks. This document also provides guidance on the correct “Certification Statements” that a client can make.

It was lovely to welcome the auditor back to Russell Taylor. It’s always a bonus when an auditor that has been here before as they are more familiar with the company and the scope of our business and I also feel it helps put the staff that may come into contact with the auditor at ease as they are not a complete stranger! We would not think of going anywhere else other than WCS and look forward to next year.
