Uncertified products are typically made from low-quality components that are expected to fail safety and quality tests, and as such, can only be relied upon for a short duration of time.
On the other hand, certified products have passed prerequisite terms, conditions, tests, etc., established by an independent body of specialists. Moreover, it is safe to utilize products that meet these requirements as they’ve been put through rigorous testing to ensure user health and safety.
All industries, from small consumer electronics to the aerospace & defense sector can benefit from certification services. Certification services for agricultural and food products, for example, inspect the quality of seeds and crops.
Seed source verifications, field inspections, seed quality analysis, seed genetic purity evaluations, and seed treatments are all part of the seed certification process. These certifications are carried out at each stage and between stages of a product’s development lifecycle, where verification services examine the uniformity, completeness, and accuracy of goods in terms of efficiency and performance.
They assess items at each stage of production to ensure that they fulfill compliance standards established earlier. Intertek, for example, offers document verifications, initial production checks, in-production checks, and import and export verifications, among other services.

Market Dynamics –
Key certifications provided by recognized and reliable authorities assist such businesses in increasing their legitimacy and general efficiency. Through various forms of marketing, companies connect with clients to assure them of a product’s quality. As a result, several individuals prefer goods that are labeled and certified, resulting in branded businesses generating more revenue.
Governments also promote the adoption of certified products and services to ensure the safety of its consumers. For example, food companies in India with the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) accreditation can guarantee that their products are made according to strict guidelines and are safe to eat.
As a result of the strong commitment, manufacturing businesses make to their clients in terms of delivering high-quality goods and services, as a means of maintaining their respective market position, management system certification industry players have been able to influence a majority of existing industries.
Differing local norms and standards across various locations are expected to create impediments to a product’s international acceptability as trade becomes more globalized. This is expected to lead to several inconsistencies between local and international standards, potentially stifling market expansion prospects.
Variations in regulatory requirements among nations can also result in tax disparities, resulting in additional expenditures for businesses (for example, the hiring of local staff to handle tax-related issues, etc.). Certification firms are subject to local laws and must follow the rules & regulations of a country in which they operate, which may limit their efficiency.
Furthermore, there are always dangers associated with standardization and the quality of certification services offered by certification firms, such as potential product failure, the erratic functioning of a product, etc. For example, vehicle emission regulations vary between Europe and APAC, creating ambiguity for market players when it comes to adopting emission standards, resulting in longer lead times, inefficiencies, and other business-related concerns.
In terms of revenue movement from industrialized to developing economies, the certification market has indexed a significant shift in adoption levels, particularly among smaller economies such as Bangladesh and Nepal.
For example, these aforementioned nations are working on enhancing their certification services for industries such as healthcare and life sciences to ensure that medical equipment is tested and is safe to operate.
Governments in countries such as China, South Korea, and Japan have transitioned from physical to digital platforms in order to strengthen infrastructure and services made available to the public.
As the physical certification of goods and services has become almost impossible as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, several businesses are now looking to be digitally certified instead. This is accomplished when a product examined with the help of an electronic device, such as a computer, monitor, etc., and noticeable faults, if any, are found in this manner.
Several certification providers across the world continue to provide analog services. Although, improvements in digitalized services are expected to create new market growth prospects, certain services, such as food & beverage product certifications, must still be provided using conventional methods.
Recertification services, digital audits, remote audits, and online sampling are among the services offered by key companies in the management system certification market. Organizations deliver alternatives to in-person services by combining digital, real-time, and remote capabilities without sacrificing product integrity or service quality.
Multiple technologies have penetrated various end-use applications as a direct result of increased globalization levels. For personal and professional purposes, technology has facilitated significant changes in day-to-day operations and activities. This exponential rate of technological developments, as well as the significant impact that technology has had on businesses across the world, is immense.
Cognitive, block-chain, cybersecurity and virtual reality are projected to become macro forces that will have a direct impact on how Testing, Inspection, and Certification (TIC) players view the market today. In the near future, new market hurdles that management system certification players may face are projected to emerge as a result of new digital experiences.
For example, the consumer landscape for Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) testing is highly competitive; firms are constantly striving to differentiate themselves and achieve greater customer interaction levels.
The existence of an immersive component makes automated or lab testing difficult, thereby making the certification of AR/VR technologies a difficult task. Hardware certification assists manufacturers in ensuring that the gadget functions properly, is built to fit, and is compatible with other simulation-related devices.
Smaller participants in the management system certification ecosystem are experiencing difficulties in providing certification services for products that are centered around developing technologies.
On the other hand, for emerging and smaller-sized companies in the global management system certification market, integrating developing technologies with various products for certification purposes in the automotive, IT, and telecom industry may become a hindrance.
Major participants in the management system certification market may readily incorporate new and developing technologies into their existing service offerings owing to the prospects of increasing their given profit margins. For example, in early 2018, Bureau Veritas introduced Origin, the world’s first traceability label, which provides customers of the food & beverage, consumer goods, and retail industries with complete end-to-end verification of a product’s path.
Origin provides consumers with a simple and practical approach to trace any related information irrespective of the stage in a product’s lifecycle. In-store shoppers can scan a QR code to learn more about a product’s history, leading to more informed purchases.
As a result, smaller management system certification players should expect the integration of evolving technologies with existing service offerings, as well as the certification of products across several applications, to be a difficult assignment in the near future.
