Adopting the ICERTIAS Customers' Friend Charter
One of the most essential steps in the ICERTIAS Customers' Friend certification procedure is adopting the ICERTIAS Customers'Friend Charter.
Read the complete charter HERE.
Those companies that cannot or do not want to accept the Charter obligations towards their users, clients, customers, and employees, can no longer compete for the official ICERTIAS Customers' Friend status.
ICERTIAS Declared Customers' Friend
Those companies that are willing to accept the obligations from the ICERTIAS Customers' Friend Charter are included in the nomination procedure, and can immediately wear the red "Declared ICERTIAS Customers' Friend" medal.
Such companies can now be evaluated by their customers and clients through the ICERTIAS Customers' Friend online form with scores (the so-called red diamonds) from 1 to 5.
The companies that win 4 or 5 red diamonds have the right to use the certification medal, i.e. the medal labelled "ICERTIAS Customers' Friend" with four or five red diamonds (depending on the number of red diamonds they have won in the voting by consumers), in their promotional activities.
Certificate validity period
Issued ICERTIAS Customers' Friend certificates are valid for a period of one year from the day they have been issued.
After this period, the company, if interested, can again go through the certification procedure and, based on the votes of its customers and clients, earn for a new period a revised, ICERTIAS Customers' Friend certification medal.
Those companies that want to use the old ICERTIAS Customers' Friend medal (after the expiry of the certificate validity period) may do so with special permission from ICERTIAS, but on a limited basis – e.g. solely on the packaging and containers of their products and services, only with the designation of the year when the certificate was issued, and not in public for massive promotion (e.g. such use is not allowed in TV commercials, advertisements in newspapers, etc.).
