Certification creates confidence
When you buy a cycle helmet, you want to know that it will provide protection if you fall from your bicycle. You want to know that an independent party has tested and approved the product. Certification is a guarantee of quality that creates confidence in the market. This may apply to a product’s durability, as well as other qualitative aspects such as data security and environmental sustainability. A further area is personal certification; the testing and certification of an individual’s competence.
