About Us

Profile

GZQ inspects management systems, products, processes and service provisions according to national and international regulations, standards and directives. For over 20 years our satisfied customers in Germany and Europe rely on the experience and technical expertise of GZQ. Our customers range from small-to-medium businesses to large corporations with extensive site networks and various certification requirements. Our priorities are neutrality, confidentiality as well as short communication channels and transparent certification processes on par with our customers.

Organisation

GZQ is registered in the commercial register as a limited liability company which acts independently. Thanks to our strategically aligned organisation with defined areas of competency and responsibilities, our processes, from application to issuing of certificates, run systematically, transparently and promptly. Our management, auditors and technical experts as well as our employees act and have the mindset according to our core values, in particular customer satisfaction. With their skills and commitment, all our employees contribute to the sustainable success of GZQ and its customers.

Likewise, we pro-actively deal with innovative developments. In addition, within the framework of the technical and initiative supervisory law, monitoring is provided by an independent steering committee, which is comprised of representatives from economy and science.

Impartiality

GZQ is committed to impartiality for all its certification activities. We have defined procedures which guarantee an independent and objective handling of the certifications processes, thus avoiding any potential conflicts of interest. GZQ systematically analyses the possibilities of conflicts of interests. GZQ does not offer consultancy for management systems. Neither are internal audits carried out at customers’ premises. This also includes the assurance of impartial acting of internal and external certification staff, as well as committees which may have an influence on the certification process. To ensure impartiality, the steering committee also bears responsibility.

GZQ in society

As part of our societal and social responsibility, we are committed to various social and charitable projects for people with disabilities as well as children’s aid programs.
