Technical Expertise

Smithers offers clients a level of technical expertise and performance excellence unmatched in the certification body marketplace.

Along with our Tailored Account Services, Smithers continues to maintain a premier technical performance level within the overall third-party assessment scheme as well as a low risk overall with industry stakeholders and accreditation bodies.

Why does this matter?

As a certified organization, you never want your certification to be at risk because of your certification body's lack of performance.

Smithers has continued to sustain and, in some cases, increase our involvement in various industry technical groups:
  • International Association of Accredited Registrars (IAAR)
  • Working Committee on Auditor Apprenticeship program (IAAR)
  • International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG) RMC (Registration Management Committee)
  • AS9104-3 Writing Committee
  • US TAG 176 (writing committee for ISO 9001)
  • Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG) membership
  • Founding member of the International Automotive Certification Bodies Association (IACBA) and Smithers team members serve on the Board of Directors as well as in the role of former chairperson.

Why does this matter?

Smithers believes Certification Bodies should be expected to involve themselves in the promotion of standards and this offers advantages to our clients through important and valuable technical insights.

Relationship Management Approach

Smithers believes in a Relationship Management model that ultimately drives toward a "relational"-value relationship with all our clients.
