IQNET stands for the IQNet Association - The International Certification Network. Founded in 1990 and headquartered in Switzerland, IQNET is the world’s largest network of certification bodies. Currently, it has 38 members from Asia, Europe and Americas, and these members have more than 200 branches worldwide.

IQNET has extensive global resources, including more than 17,000 auditors and industry experts, and is accredited by more than 40 accreditation bodies. Its members have issued a total of 360,000 certificates. Enterprises audited by IQNet are publicly available on the IQNet website (http://www.iqnet-certification.com/).

“Passport” for nearly 40 certification bodies (CBs) worldwide: IQNET members have signed multilateral recognition agreements to ensure mutual recognition of certificates in CB community. This means that your CQC certificate will be recognized by all members.

Statement of equivalence: If you have a certificate issued by any member of IQNET, you can apply for a statement of equivalence of any other members’ certificate. The statement can prove that the certificate you own has the same legal effect as the certificate issued by the CB, which eliminates the hassle of repeated certification. The way to obtain the statement is very simple. If you have a CQC certificate, you only need to file an application to us, and within 1-2 days you will get a statement of equivalence issued by other CBs, indicating that they regard this certificate as their own. No additional fee is required.

Convenient co-certification: You can obtain certificates issued by first-class CBs from more than 30 nations without leaving your home. If you already have a CQC certificate, directly file an application to CQC for a certificate renewal. Please translate the relevant audit materials then required during CQC certification before submitting them to CQC. We will assist you in relevant formalities.

International co-operation: applicable to multinational enterprises with multiple sites. You just need to file a certification application to CQC, and CQC will find you suitable IQNET members for an efficient audit.
