The basis for the establishment of the “Certification Division” has been envisaged under the Bhutan Standards Act 2010 with the following mandates:
- Carry out/operate Product Certification schemes
- Carry out/operate Management Systems Certification schemes
The Product Certification Scheme is operated as per the international standard ISO/IEC 17065:2012 which lays down the requirements that certification bodies must fulfil in order to carry out product certification. The Management System Certification is operated as per ISO/IEC 17021:2015.
The main function of the division is to make an independent conformity assessment and provide a written assurance (a certificate) that the product, service or system in question meets specific requirements.
The division is facilitated by the support units including the International Relations (IR) and Administration & Finance (A&F) Division.
