Certification of Conformity

What is TSE Certificate of Conformity?

The certificate of conformity is the name given to the certificate stating the conformity of the goods and services produced by the enterprises to the relevant standard in any subject with a standard published by the Turkish Standards Institute (TSE). The companies that have obtained the Certificate of Conformity can add the TSE brand to the goods and services they produce based on the agreement signed with the certification body. After the conformity certification studies carried out in this way, the companies receive the certificate of conformity and use the TSE brand on their products. TSE Certificate of Conformity is issued on behalf of the enterprise and shows the trademark, type, class and type of the related goods and services. The validity period of the Certificate of Conformity is one year.

The benefits obtained by the TSE Certificate of Conformity are as follows:

  • In the national markets, the enterprise has a great advantage.
  • In addition to ease of access to the market, it gains superiority over its competitors.
  • Operating costs are decreasing and increasing to high capacity in trade.
  • Gaining trust among consumers.
  • The goods and services offered to consumers are guaranteed to be reliable.
  • It is advantageous in public and private sector tenders.

In the offices and facilities of the enterprises requesting the Certificate of Conformity, a system with quality control capability and guaranteeing its continuity should be applied. In order to determine this situation, on-site audits are required by the certification body. In these audits, measurement, test, analysis and inspection studies required by the relevant standard are carried out. At the end of these studies, if the enterprise is found suitable, Certificate of Conformity is issued and delivered.

The important point here is to ensure the continuity of this Certificate of Conformity. For this reason, each year, the company has to have the audits and the certificate renewed. During these regular inspections, if necessary, product samples are collected from the market and the same measurements, tests, analyzes and inspections are performed. If it is decided that the entity does not deviate from the relevant certification requirements, the Certificate of Conformity shall remain valid.
