Use of Mark should be carried out in such a manner, that it ensures traceability back to QMS Certification Services (QMS CS). Our Logo itself includes full name of our Certification Body.


Certified client should ensure that there is no ambiguity, in the mark or accompanying text, as to what has been certified and that QMS CS has granted the certification.


The Certification Mark shall not under any circumstances be used on a product or product packaging seen by the consumer or in any other way that may imply that the product(s) itself has been certified by QMS CS.


QMSCS don’t permit its marks to be applied by certified clients to laboratory test, calibration or inspection reports or certificates.

Type labels or identification plates are considered as part of the product. Statement on Producd Packaging shall in no way imply that the product, process or service provided by client is certified by QMSCS. Statement should clearly imply that the Management System is certified.

Statement on Product Packaging or in Accompanying Information shall include reference to:

a. identification (e.g.brand or name) of the certified client;

b. the type of management system (e.g.quality, environment) and the applicable standard;

amend all the advertising matter when the scope of certification has been reduced;

The certified organisation shall not display the certification mark on buildings, organisational flags and vehicles except in publicity material like part of a large advertisement.
4. QMSCS will exercise proper control of ownership and will take action to deal with incorrect references or misleading use of certification documents, marks or audit reports as per details given below:


Should intentional misuse of Certificates or Marks occur then a major CAR shall be raised and an appropriate action may be taken which may include withdrawal of certificate, information of withdrawal to customers and competitors, publication of such actions in News papers and, if necessary other legal actions.


Should an unintentional misuse of Certificates or Marks occur then dependent upon the severity and extent of misuse an appropriately graded CAR shall be raised.  Should a minor CAR be raised then it must be closed out within three (3) months or the CAR shall be regraded as ‘Major’.
