Getting the trust of partners through GC-Mark certification

In a globally saturated market, it is critical to building trust between partners to succeed in business. Loyalty to the supplier by its customers and other stakeholders makes this success continuous and growing.

To help businesses and organizations build trust, one of the world’s leading certification companies, DQS (Germany), has launched a new comprehensive loyalty program spread across continents called GC-Mark. This program provides for simplified procedures for voluntary conformity assessment of products, services and/or organizations (enterprises) based on the available Global Conformance rules and requirements. It is focused on building trust between different parties of economic interaction and maintaining that trust over time.

It is well known that under the current rules of conformity assessment, organizations need to meet a wide variety of requirements to obtain product certification or to their target management systems. At the same time, GC-Mark is designed to make it easier to meet these requirements, while ensuring the continued attractiveness of the business: GC-Mark can be trusted in one step.

To this end, DQS has developed programs for all GC-Mark a check-list of criteria that are based on national and international rules and regulations. At the same time, the GC-Mark approach and criteria are compatible with existing requirements for quality management systems, ecology, occupational safety and more. Checklists are available to any organization for self-assessment and external audit directly at the site. Using GC-Mark programs helps organizations prepare for the audit on their own and eliminate potential inconsistencies.
Based on GC-Mark, organizations have the unique ability to bring their compliance with globally recognized criteria to partners who may be unfamiliar with the intricacies of international standards for management systems and their certification. And thus increase the attractiveness of the market and the external recognition of their organization. To obtain GC-Mark certificates, organizations do not need to have or obtain an appropriate ISO certificate for their target management system. Unlike ISO certificates, GC-Mark is more visually appealing and understandable to all stakeholders.

GC-Mark is a registered trademark of DQS CFS GmbH and the international DQS Group with 85 offices in more than 60 countries.

They focus on various parameters such as durability and quality of products, environmental impact, compliance with applicable laws and regulations, reliability of suppliers, and social responsibility of the organization. For each GC-Mark, there is an appropriate list of criteria that must be met to be GC-Mark certified. The following are examples of individual GC-Mark certificate groups.
