Certification - is a procedure in which the certification body, which is independent either from the manufacturer or supplier of the product, or from the user (buyer), confirms that the product, process or service complies with the specified requirements.
In most cases such approval is executed by issuing a document called a Certificate. Sometimes certification is mistakenly equated to the licensing. However, these are two different things: license gives the permission (or the right) to carry out some kind of activity, and certification describes the compliance of the product or service to the requirements set.
