If you wish to appeal against the outcome of an assessment, or on any other matter that affects your certification, Certification Europe has an appeals process that you must follow. 

Appeals will only be recognised when an authenticated appeal is received. Authentication involves the receipt of a formal letter or email clearly indicating that an appeal has been made. This letter/email must be sent to Certification Europe within one month from the date the written report was received detailing the decision in question.

The formal letter or email must include:

  • The name and address of the complainant/appellant.
  • Documented evidence or information to support the appeal.
