Since the late 1980s, the certification of quality management systems according to ISO 9001 has evolved enormously worldwide. Today, the regulations for quality (ISO 9001), environment (ISO 14001) and occupational health and safety (ISO 45001) are consistently required and are accepted and recognised worldwide in all areas. Today, certifications are often used voluntarily to present the development and successful maintenance of a corresponding management system to the outside world.
X.CERT ® was founded in autumn 2016 by Martin Stumpe in Rottweil (Baden-Württemberg) to help customers implement these requirements and prove them with a corresponding certificate. The founder has been actively involved in the field of quality, environmental and occupational safety management systems since 1990 and works as an auditor for various certification bodies operating worldwide. The company headquarters were moved to Oderwitz (Saxony), as the region needs a workforce and offers optimal conditions for the training of workers and specialists.
