Steps to Transferring Your Certification
There is a simple 5 step process to transferring your certification to KCS and it can take as little as 1 week. Follow these steps to ensure a quick and easy transfer to KCS:
- Contact our friendly sales staff who will help to collect the information required for a transfer. Either email us: firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 00971-54-313 9696
- KCS will issue you with a quotation for your transfer and ongoing certification.
- Once the quote is accepted a Pre-Transfer Review will take place to transfer your certificate. This will be offsite unless you have outstanding non-conformities which have not been closed by your current certification body.
- KCS will issue a new certificate which is aligned to your existing certification dates.
- KCS will inform your current certification body of your transfer.
Please note: some Certification Bodies may charge a cancellation fee, so please check your terms and conditions carefully prior to making any decision.
The transfer process does have a few formalities which maintain the integrity of the certification during transfer. We’ll need a copy of your current valid certificate of registration and latest audit report(s) to start the process.
On successful completion of the transfer we issue an certificate of registration with the same validity as your previous certificate. You will then receive audits on an ongoing basis to make sure your systems remain compliant.
