Cancellation Process

  • Each Certificate of Registration proposed for cancellation shall be reviewed by the Certification Manager
  • HSB RS reserves the right to cancel at any time the Certificate of Registration of an organization should just cause necessitates
  • Cancellation would be the result of the client’s non-compliance with the HSB RS quality system manual and Certification Agreement Standard Terms and Conditions agreed to by the Client
    Examples of client non-compliance would be, but not limit to:
    • Misuse of the Certificate of Registration
    • Surveillance audits show that the necessary prerequisites for maintaining the certification are no longer fulfilled
    • The analysis of a complaint or any other information indicates that the certified client no longer complies with the requirements of certification
    • Insufficient response to corrective actions required during the agreed upon timeframe
    • Corrective actions have not been implemented
    • Major violations of the Certification Agreement, such as outstanding/delinquent invoices, failure to allow a scheduled surveillance activity
    • Client refuses to cooperate (no communication, etc.) with scheduling thus placing the HSB RS accreditation at risk
    • HSB RS is unable to perform an audit in a specific geographical region due to constraints placed upon them by governmental or accreditation agencies
  • Should HSB RS decide to cease an accreditation or discontinue doing business in a geographical area
  • The client is informed relative to the cancellation of certification with an explanation of details for such action
  • Once a certificate is cancelled, it cannot be reinstated
  • Upon cancellation the client shall discontinue its use of all advertising matter that contains a reference to certification
