Any company around world can decide freely to register and be certified according to the integrated management system. Companies participating in Piso-Certification paid registration fees. In addition, the Piso-Certification must be renewed with an annual renewal fee. Otherwise a re-registration. 35% of registration and annual extension fees are used to support environmental and public safety projects in associations and public services (20% to be used in the locality of the registered company). This is to support the Institute commitment towards a safe and sustainable world. The participating companies may also be recognized as part of the sponsor of the projects.

Only professional members with Piso-Certification (accreditation of certificates/examination and training) are allowed to carry out the audit.

Also, we create partnership in many regions for implementing the scheme in companies in the sector that the certification covers and foster local ownership and extend it to other sectors as well as for the continuous improvement. We are looking for regional representatives as partners for the Piso-Certification (contact: Piso Institute for the conditions).
