Product certification is the attestation that a device, before being placed on the market, has been subjected to the necessary checks by an accredited third-party body, independent of those who sell and manufacture, to ascertain compliance with the requirements of European and/or international directives.

Obtaining a conformity mark also involves periodic control of production. Not only were the prototype samples compliant with the regulations, the production process is also suitable for guaranteeing product compliance over time.

Rold is able to obtain any conformity mark necessary for commercialization in the markets of the world.

system certification

By system certifications we mean all those rules drawn up with the aim of improving the effectiveness and efficiency of business processes. This standard ensures that business processes are focused towards the customer and towards continuous improvement.

ROLD’s quality management system, in compliance with ISO 9001, has been certified since 1994. Since 2000, IMQ’s Certification Systems division has been certified by CSQ. The CSQ adheres to the IQNet international agreement which has as its purpose the mutual recognition of management system certifications issued by international certification bodies.

In order to integrate the policies referred to in the increasingly central Environmental Sustainability, the certification of the Environmental System ISO 14001 and UNI ISO 45001, Management systems for health and safety at work, are in the planning stage.
