Objective assessment by independent experts
A KOMO certificate is not a non-committal matter. After all, the KOMO Quality Mark owes its reputation primarily to the fact that objective assessment is performed by independent experts: certification bodies that are appointed by a national Accreditation Council. They have the exclusive authority to issue KOMO Quality Declarations.
There are about 6.300 KOMO certificates and approximately 4.300 KOMO Certificate Holders. They can only carry the KOMO Quality Mark if their product, application process, realisation process or service meets the quality requirements stipulated in the Assessment Directives. The Assessment Directives are drawn up by independent Committees of Experts under the supervision of one or more certification bodies.
