What are Certified Recognition Organisations?

Certified Recognition Organisations are organisations licensed by EFQM to deliver the assessments required for external EFQM Recognition. They must be EFQM members and uphold the EFQM Code of Conduct.

EFQM certified organisations can also purchase and re-sell licenses for the EFQM digital platforms (AssessBase and KnowledgeBase)

EFQM Certified Recognition Organisations will be asked to accept and uphold the EFQM code of conduct and to sign the respective agreements.
