Certifications of TÜV SÜD Management Service GmbH or TÜV SÜD Sec-IT GmbH are usually audits of processes within a management system. A management system describes management tasks and combines methods and tools to meet the requirements of specific areas (for example quality, environmental protection, occupational safety, etc.). The management system is used to operate and control the company. Products or services of the respective company are not examined within the scope of such audits. Certifications of management systems help companies to optimize their internal processes and the entire organization leading to a process of continuous improvement.
