EXCiPACT looks back on record 2017

EXCiPACT saw a significant growth in new certifications last year, rising 56% from 43 in 2016 to 67, including 10 re-certifications, according the organization’s president Kevin McGlue (pictured).

“Many more certifications are known to be in the pipeline in Europe, China, India and North America, says McGlue, who notes that 2017 also saw the registration of a seventh certifying body – Italy’s Certiquality – and the approval of three new auditors in Japan (SGS), Switzerland (SGS) and Spain (AENOR). One of the most important achievements in the year was the launch of the revised EXCiPACT standard in November.

A number of new projects will come to fruition in 2018, including a new auditor training course that is being developed by Alain Becart, EXCiPACT’s recently appointed quality manager, and a general awareness course aimed at people who want to learn about the EXCiPACT standard, such as companies just starting out on the certification journey.
