Certified Recognition Organisations

Certified Recognition Organisations (CRO) are organisations certified by EFQM in delivering official EFQM assessment associated with external EFQM Recognition. 

All EFQM Certified Organisations need to be an existing Member of EFQM or will need to join EFQM as a new Member.

All EFQM certified organisations will have the possibility to purchase licenses to access new EFQM digital platforms (Assess Base and Knowledge Base) and re-sell them externally. Information about Assess base and Knowledge Base are available on the EFQM website. 

EFQM Certified Recognition Organisations will be asked to accept and uphold the EFQM code of conduct and to sign the respective agreements.

If you would like to receive more information about how to become a CTO, please contact us at partnerships@efqm.org
