Unlike certificate of conformity (ECAS), EQM does not have any requirement for printing number or code on the label. Just the EQM logo is required on the label of certified product, hence every year same packaging material/label can be used for production. Even if the notified or certification body is changed still there will be no need of changing the label of the product. Thus, saving companies immensely both in terms of time and cost.
It is a 3 years certification. Only surveillance audit will be applicable for the second & third year of certification, if required based on document review. At the end of 3rd year, the certificate can be renewed without the hassle of certification process. Thus easier & hassle-free process after the initial certification.
Expansion of scope of certificate allows addition of new products during certification period thus eliminating the requirement for new certification process.
EQM is the quality mark of UAE and has higher merit & far better recognition than certificate of conformity (ECAS) which is just an ordinary certificate of conformity.
