Information on organizations certified by DAB accredited bodies is available from the Certified Organization Search within the DAB Register.
Search tips Enter the first few letters of the organization name into the Organization search box. This should generate a list of organizations that match those criteria. If you get too many results increase the number of letters of the organization name. If your result is unsuccessful check the spelling of the organization’s name, enter fewer letters, or if the organization has more than one word in its name (i.e. ”ABC Export”) enter a few letters of the second word (i.e. "Export").
CIf you are unable to locate the organization you should contact the Certification Body who certified the organization.
Product testing is usually undertaken by test laboratories. An Internet search for test laboratories for your product should produce a list of testing laboratories.
DAB does not provide training in these areas. An internet search in which you specify the type of training, the standard, and preferred location should produce a list of training organizations.
Export requirements are generally set by the country you are exporting to. DAB does not have information on export requirements.

ISO 14001 is a standard that organizations can use to demonstrate sound environmental performance by controlling the impacts of their activities consistent with their environmental policy and objectives. Environmental objectives are as defined by the organization and usually include regulatory requirements as well as voluntary objectives. If you are interested in implementing an environmental management system (EMS) based on the ISO 14001 standard in your organization contact a DAB accredited conformity assessment body (CAB).
Accreditation and Certification are regularly used interchangeably. However, in the conformity assessment industry both terms have very specific meanings. In layman’s terms accreditation can be described as “certifying the certifiers”. Conformity assessment bodies (CABs), more widely known as Certification Bodies, are accredited after they successfully undergo a process of assessment by an accreditation body like DAB, to ensure they meet international standards that among other things assess the body’s impartiality and competence. Certification is undertaken by an accredited CAB and is a process by which an independent and competent third party certifies that a product, system or person, conforms to specific requirements.
