How to get certified to IUI

IUI certification and award gets your innovative product recognized globally. Demonstrate your compliance and commitment to industry-respected practices, stay competitive, and open up new business opportunities.

We make the certification process straight forward. After we have received your application we appoint a client manager who will guide you and your business through the following steps.


This is an optional pre-assessment service where we take a closer look at your existing product and innovation management system and compare it with the requirements of the IUI. This helps identify areas that need more work before we carry out a formal assessment, saving you time and money.

Formal Audit

This happens in two stages. First we review your organization’s preparedness for assessment by checking if the necessary IUI criteria have been developed. We will share the details of our findings with you so that if we find gaps, you can close them. If all the requirements are in place, we will then assess the implementation of the procedures and controls within your organization to make sure that they are working effectively as required for certification.

Certification and Award

When you have passed the formal audit you will receive an IUI certificate (IUI 5001 or IUI 5002), which is valid for the one year. Your client manager will stay in touch during this time, paying you regular visits to make sure your system doesn’t just remain compliant, but that it continually improves.
