Demonstrate that your manufacturing processes and systems are transparent, well controlled and robust.

IFC Certification must be able to establish that the products which are being manufactured by applicant companies for registration in any of IFC Certification Ltd.’s schemes are identified and manufactured in such a way as to provide the necessary confidence that IFC Certification Ltd require.

Not only does IFC Certification Ltd require applicants to demonstrate that the manufacturing processes are well controlled, but that the systems used to control the other relevant processes are equally robust. The way to demonstrate this is to have in place what is termed a ‘Factory Production Control’ system (FPC).
