    • Compliance with international requirements, e.g. such as e.g. ISO 60

    • Performance of neutral inspections in accordance with the requirements of ISO 19011 - separation of evaluation and certification

    • Deployment of qualified or competent personnel, acting independently and impartially - inspectors must be registered with SURE

    • Participation in SURE's initial training and training of SURE inspectors prior to starting certification activities , including participation in other events offered by SURE
