Our certification process is simple and transparent; we have taken out all the complications to help you move forward with the assessment and certification of your institution’s management system.
ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards bodies (ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out through ISO technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical committee has been established has the right to be represented on that committee. International organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work. ISO collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of electrotechnical standardization.
Organizations that aim to be successful in the long term need to establish and maintain a culture of compliance, considering the needs and expectations of interested parties. Compliance is therefore not only the basis, but also an opportunity, for a successful and sustainable organization.
Compliance is an ongoing process and the outcome of an organization meeting its obligations. Compliance is made sustainable by embedding it in the culture of the organization and in the behaviour and attitude of people working for it. While maintaining its independence, it is preferable that compliance management is integrated with the organization’s other management processes and its operational requirements and procedures.
An effective, organization-wide compliance management system enables an organization to demonstrate its commitment to comply with relevant laws, regulatory requirements, industry codes and organizational standards, as well as standards of good governance, generally accepted best practices, ethics and community expectations.
An organization’s approach to compliance is shaped by the leadership applying core values and generally accepted good governance, ethical and community standards. Embedding compliance in the behaviour of the people working for an organization depends above all on leadership at all levels and clear values of an organization, as well as an acknowledgement and implementation of measures to promote compliant behaviour. If this is not the case at all levels of an organization, there is a risk of noncompliance.
In a number of jurisdictions, courts have considered an organization’s commitment to compliance through its compliance management system when determining the appropriate penalty to be imposed for contraventions of relevant laws. Therefore, regulatory and judicial bodies can also benefit from this
document as a benchmark.
Organizations are increasingly convinced that, by applying binding values and appropriate compliance management, they can safeguard their integrity and avoid or minimize noncompliance with the organization’s compliance obligations. Integrity and effective compliance are therefore key elements of good and diligent management. Compliance also contributes to the socially responsible behaviour of organizations.

An educational institution must take several steps to gain INTEAS certification. Below is a simple representation of the process.
Once formal paperwork has been submitted to INTEAS, conduct an intensive review of the prepared materials, the written report and the general workings of the university or institution
After the previous steps are completed, INTEAS calls upon their commission to review the collected information and affirm certification status for the university or institution.
By accepting certification status from INTEAS, a university or other institution agrees to uphold the quality standards set by the INTEAS.
