The manufacturer’s production site must be equipped with suitable production, testing and control systems, personnel and equipment to ensure that the products it places on the market conform with the applicable standards at all times. This is established by carrying out an audit of the production site. For every model for which the manufacturer applies for a certification mark, IMQ conducts the type tests required by the applicable standards. The manufacturer undertakes to ensure that all certified products conform with the applicable standards at all times, and to conduct certain tests on 100% of production or on a statistical basis. IMQ ensures that these tests are performed on a regular basis and repeats them on a random selection of specimens picked from production. Attraverso visite in azienda, i valutatori analizzano la capacità delle organizzazioni di pianificare e gestire i processi di business aziendali.
