Vision
Kiwa has the expertise to improve quality.

Kiwa offers a wide range of quality labels for various products. Primarily in the name of our own Kiwa brand for water-related products and Gastec for gas, but also many other licensed brands, including KOMO for construction. Besides the product certification labels Kiwa also offers a wide range of quality labels for system certification, such as VCA for safety and HKZ for healthcare.

To enlarge the strength of our brands throughout the European market Kiwa presents our own and licensed certification brands in combination with the company name: Kiwa. Kiwa aims to present all certification schemes under the Kiwa and Gastec brand. Licensed certification schemes brands like VCA, KOMO®, Certiva will also be presented with our Kiwa parent brand, where allowed by licensees and under the condition that a scheme matches accreditation level. Doing so we increase the (international) visibility of our brands and the (market) value of the brand for our customers.

A Kiwa label is available for every certification scheme
Quality labels as Kiwa® or Gastec QA® are uniquely connected with the certified product / process / system / attestation or certification scheme for personal skills and may solely be used by the certificate holder when a valid certificate has been issued.  Kiwa offers a wide variety of licensed marks and branch and sector marks, they look different but the same principles as laid down above are applicable.
