Q&A on certification

Certification by Ecocert: what is it?

Certification is a rigorous process that consists of an independent and impartial certification body assessing the conformity of a product, service or system with environmental and social requirements specified in a standard. At the end of the certification process, Ecocert issues a decision and when positive, delivers a written assurance called a certificate.

What is a standard?

It is a functional document listing all the criteria to be implemented as well as the inspection procedures for obtaining certification and the associated labels. All the standards selected by Ecocert promote practices with a positive impact on the environment and society.

How do I know a product is certified by Ecocert?

Ecocert conducts on-site inspections to ensure that a product properly complies with the requirements described in a standard.An Ecocert-certified product may be identified in various ways, depending on the type of products (food, cosmetics, detergents, etc.) therefore it's necessary to read the labels and find one of the following:

  • The wording "certified by Ecocert"
  • The Ecocert certification logo
  • The name of the standard Any of these prove that the wording ("organic" for example) displayed on the product has been checked for compliance by Ecocert.

How are organic products certified by Ecocert?

Ecocert has an international network in more than 130 countries to verify in the field the conformity of practices with organic specifications. The entire supply chain is audited--from the raw material to the finished product. Ecocert carries out at least one annual on-site inspection supplemented by additional unannounced audits during the year. Samples may also be taken for laboratory analysis. The audit reports are then independently verified by our teams in order to certify organic products.
