ICERTIAS - International Certification Association GmbH is a private, politically independent organisation headquartered in Zurich, Switzerland. We at ICERTIAS (icertias.com) encourage innovative forms of market research and study on both a local and international scale. Our organisation is primarily focused on the global recognition and promotion of product quality and value as well as the utmost standard in customer and client relations.

We also encourage international cooperation between existing and newly established testing, research, and certification organisations and promote the collaborative development of testing, research, and certification tools across country borders.

Operating from a consumer perspective, we educate local organisations on the promotion of products and services that meet our high-quality standards, the provision of better value and the extension of quality to local and international markets and the nurturing of customer and client relations.

Internationally, we are best known for our Best Buy Award (bestbuyaward.org), QUDAL - QUality meDAL (qudal.com) and ICERTIAS Customers' Friend (customersfriend.org) research and certification programmes.

Our organisation has managed to expand its research and certification activities to more than 40 countries on five continents within less than five years of establishment in Zurich in 2011.

ICERTIAS certificates QUDAL (QUality meDAL) and Best Buy Award have become recognised by consumers on numerous markets as tokens of quality and good-buy benchmarks while the newest certification programme, ICERTIAS Customers' Friend launched at the end of 2014, is already making its mark in defining excellence in customer and client service.
