Undergoing External Assessment and Achieving Recognition

Organisations use the EFQM Model to prepare for and then undergo an external assessment linked to EFQM’s Recognition portfolio. Using the EFQM Model, qualified EFQM Assessors review the current business of an EFQM
Recognition applicant, identify their main strengths and gaps, and provide it with other relevant insights. Organisations are scored out of 1000 points according to their externally reviewed level of organisational maturity and receive a Recognition certificate that matches
the maturity level achieved.
