GWO has recently identified a certification body performing audits to training providers, who has not documented compliance with GWO Criteria
TRAINING PROVIDER certifications have been rejected, after a certification body performing their audits failed to document its own compliance with the GWO Critieria for Certification Bodies.
Since April 1, all certification bodies have been required to document their compliance to the Certification Body criteria BEFORE performing audits.
Regrettably, c. GWO will not accept any certifications they have awarded after 1 April, 2019.
Despite repeated requests and a prolonged dialogue with the certification body in question, they have not provided GWO with the required documentation of compliance.
Training Providers using this certification body have been directly notified by GWO and informed that all subsequent audits including surveillance audits must be carried out by a certification body that has demonstrated compliance with the criteria.
You can find a complete list of certification bodies that have demonstrated compliance and are approved to carry out audits according to the GWO criteria on our website.
