With reg to above referred topic I am genuinely interested to know whether it is advisable to change the agency at the renewal stage. Our major concern is that the agency from whom the accreditation was originally taken is no longer as prestigious. There are other options available which may cost more but would be more rewarding for the organisation in the long run. Would welcome inputs so that an informed decision is taken!

Hi Anil, you are not tied to any certification body; if you are not comfortable with them feel free to move. In fact just do it.


You can use any certification body that is accredted for the standard to which you wish to be certificated.
