• Each Certificate of Registration proposed for cancellation shall be reviewed by the Certification Manager.
  • HSB RS reserves the right to cancel at any time the Certificate of Registration of an organization should just cause necessitate cancellation.
  • Cancellation would be the result of the client’s non-compliance with the HSB RS quality system manual and Certification Agreement Standard Terms and Conditions agreed to by the Client.

  • Once a certificate is cancelled, it cannot be reinstated.
