Our activities in Testing, Inspection and Certification (TIC) logically place Kiwa at the heart of society - a position strengthened by our broad history. The roots of our entities around the globe lie in safeguarding people's health and safety by providing a high quality verification service. In many cases, this role originated from a governmental mandate in sectors including gas, energy, drinking water and construction or production safety. These companies and a wealth of other family members in a broad range of markets have grown into Kiwa as it stands today: Ambitious, REliable and Engaged ('We ARE Kiwa').
We ARE Kiwa, a global leader in Testing, Inspection and Certification (TIC). We operate at the heart of society: our aim is to create trust in people’s health and safety at work and at home. Our purpose is to contribute to making products, processes, organizations, living and working environments as clean, healthy, safe and sustainable as possible. In doing so, we create trust, transparency and a level playing field for all parties involved, both private and public. For Kiwa, fulfilling Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) means embodying these principles in all that we do and to respond to the trust society places in us. Thus, we aim to improve and sustainably develop society, both globally and locally for the benefit of all.
