Before to consider (examine) concept of voluntary
certification, let's understand - what is "certification"?
Now certification of
conformity is understood as the action of the third party proving that the
necessary confidence that properly identified production is provided,
process or service corresponds (meets) to the concrete standard, or other
normative document . Thus in system of certification of GOST R the
concept of certification is realized.
certification will be carried out (spent) when strict observance of
requirements of existing standards or other normative documentation on
production, services or processes by the state are not stipulated, i.e.
when standards or norm do not concern safety requirements and have
voluntary character for a commodity producer, for example a series of
standards of GOST R ISO 9000 about models of systems of quality at the
enterprises . The need (requirement) for voluntary certification occurs
at development of free market attitudes (relations). The manufacturer
wants to receive independent acknowledgement (confirmation) of qualitative
and other advantages before the buyer and goes on voluntary
of voluntary certification may be: production, technological processes,
services, systems of quality of the enterprises, the personnel. Voluntary
certification is distributed to those components of production which are
outside obligatory requirements for performance on safety. Voluntary
certification limits access on the market of bad quality production.
Voluntary certification checks efficiency, reliability,
эстетичность and other consumer parameters.
Voluntary certification does not substitute
obligatory. It does not forbid to sell production or services. It informs
the buyer on a condition of the goods. It struggles for the client.
For example "CSIT" at certification and
the inspection control gives the report in which specifies weak places of
production and services and prompts a way of perfection.
