Third party certification bodies are an essential element in the GWO governance framework. We reveal some data about which ones have certified the most.
GWO training providers can choose from a wide range of certification bodies to audit their training centers, fixed facilities and mobile training solutions. But which ones certified the most sites?
We recently reviewed the entire global network of GWO training providers to show which certification bodies are auditing the most. The graphic above shows every certification body and the number of certificates they have issued, by region to date.
There are some market leaders in the form of Bureau Veritas, Lloyd's Register, SGS and DNV GL, plus a number of other regional players. You can access the certificate of every training provider by reviewing their certification status on the GWO Map of Training Providers here.
