A global partner with local power

DQS Slovakia is part of the international DQS Group with 80 offices in more than 60 countries. DQS and UL Management Systems Solutions (MSS) merged at the end of March, 2008. With their alliance, Germany’s first certification body for management systems and the MSS business unit of America’s most renowned product certifies Underwriters Laboratories (UL), achieved a place among the leading certification bodies for management systems in the world.

For the DQS Group, relationships built on mutual trust should be created face to face. In this age of e-mails, voice-over-IP technology and video conferencing, can you put your faith in an ever growing network of international offices? Our answer is YES.

Complex global certification procedures spanning 50,100 or more sites, require well structured project management. They require people who speak the language and know the culture at each site; people with customer proximity and a high level of competence, who can fulfill customer expectations by performing value generating services on site. Modern communication technology can support this – but it cannot take the place of personal contact.

The international certification network

The second pillar of our international presence is IQNet. Its 36 partners – the largest international network of certification bodies – have issued approximately one third of all certificates in the world – that is more than 310,000 certified organizations.
Group customers can take advantage of over 40 international accreditation and additional services that are offered in cooperation with IQNet partners.
Since October 2006, one of DQS Holdings Directors Michael Drechsel has been the Chairman of the “Standing Committee for Constitution and Policy” – SCCP. In June 2010 he was elected as President of the IQNet.

DQS is a founding member of IQNet.
