Organizations seeking to transfer to BCI shall have its certifications in good standing.
Certifications under suspension or withdrawal or having open major nonconformists are not eligible for this transfer process and shall be considered as new certification requiring a full system audit.
When the registration has been transferred mid-cycle, BCI will issue a certificate which will be valid for the remainder of the existing certification cycle.
The prospect organization need to submit its previous certification history which is the minimum of:
- the most recent audit report,
- copy of NCRs, if there is any,
- and a copy of ISO 9001 certificate.
The information will be reviewed by BCI Certification committee to determine whether the certification is in good standing. In case the certification does not meet the requirement, the organization will be notified and then a proposal for a new certification will be issued.
