A Group may apply for RALA Certification by company or business unit by announcing group connections, but it cannot apply for a certificate as a Group. A Finnish business ID is a prerequisite for a company applying for RALA Certification.
How is a company granted Certification?
1. The company writes up a description of its key procedures and self-evaluates them using the RALA evaluation criteria.
2. The company fills in the Certification application and sends it to RALA with appendices.
3. RALA processes the application and agrees on an audit.
4. RALA conducts a first audit of the company’s business locations.
5. The RALA Certification Board decides whether to grant Certification to the functions covered in the audit.
For more details, see the description of the RALA Certification procedure.
For how long is the Certification valid?
Certification is valid for a maximum period of three years, assuming that the company continues to comply with the terms and conditions of the Certification. Compliance with the terms and conditions of the Certification is verified through an annual follow-up audit.
What are the evaluation criteria?
The evaluation criteria are presented as demands for corporate and project management. The evaluation criteria cover the special characteristics of the industry and the demands set by clients. The audit addresses areas such as quality assurance and the management of safety and environmental matters.
The RALA Certification can be granted to a company’s operating system only or both its operating system and environmental system. The evaluation criteria are therefore presented separately.
