The head of the certification body, DI Alf Martienssen, has more than 30 years of experience in management systems. He is also currently active as lead auditor for international companies and certification companies and is CEO of two internationally active trade organisations.

The head of administration, Gerlinde Merten, has 30 years of professional experience in the areas of management consulting, training, coaching and certification. Together with Prof. Babak Kaweh, CMC, she currently runs the international consulting network LQ-Consulting – Passion for Quality of Life.

The team of auditors consists of experts with comparable experience in various management tasks. In addition, we work with qualified experts from recognised organisations in order to be able to assess and evaluate sector-specific and technical topics with maximum competence.

Our steering committee as well as the cooperation with the private authorising body ARETIK ensure that all interests concerning our independent and non-directional certifications are taken into account.
