Our auditors and project managers

Our auditors and project managers

Bureau Veritas Certification is able to offer clients the same high level of quality worldwide, thanks to our experienced auditors and centralized support and training programs.

Most companies do not seek certification simply to obtain a certificate. Instead, they are looking for added value insight in their audit report in the form of identification of non-conformities. This in turn enables them to identify tangible improvements to their business.

Bureau Veritas helps you to get this information thanks to our worldwide network of highly experienced auditors. Based close to our client sites in 93 countries, they cover a wide range of standards. Our auditors have the necessary understanding of your industry and your local context to highlight relevant non-conformities, setting you on the path to continuous improvement.

  • Experience:

    75% of our auditors are Lead Auditors, reflecting their long experience and seniority

  • Continual auditor skills development:

    Bureau Veritas goes beyond the requirements of accreditation bodies by providing annual auditor training

  • Impartiality:

    all our employees and contractors commit to providing independent, unbiased conclusions

  • Seamless project management:

    for large companies seeking certification across multiple sites, a dedicated project manager interfaces with your organization to ensure the audit process runs smoothly and to schedule

Targeting consistent auditor skills

Bureau Veritas has established processes for ensuring that Certification clients worldwide receive the same high quality of service. All auditors trained by Bureau Veritas follow the same curriculum: we also recognize qualifications by other premium certification bodies. Every year, we provide auditor training around the world to bring auditors up to date on standards and best practices, using course material developed both centrally and locally. Our aim is to ensure our auditors are continually up-to-date and supported in their role to deliver consistent quality worldwide.

Project management to meet client needs

Bureau Veritas offers real strength in project management – a major advantage for large clients aiming to certify multiple sites around the world. We set up our project team to mirror our clients’ organization. A specialist project manager, responsible for project delivery, interfaces with the client project manager, for example the global Quality Manager. Meanwhile our Large Contracts Hub or local audit teams liaise with local site managers to set up audits. Our aim is to ensure your audit program runs to plan, irrespective of the size or complexity of your organization.

Strong technical support

Technical review at each stage of the process is demanded by accreditation bodies. Our Technical Reviewers review the work of auditors, ensuring that audit reports are issued without errors and in line with accreditation- and scheme rules. As a premium level certification body, we have quality objectives in place to improve our own processes. These include internal targets relating to the length of time we take to issue both audit reports and certificates.
