The certification runs alongside the other processes that are part of a project. The Certification System provide assistance from initial concept to final completion. This highlights potential errors and deficiencies at an early stage and makes quality measurable and transparent.
The certification process is done by the auditor. The contractor turns to a suitable DGNB auditor that he trusts. The search function on the DGNB Website is a useful tool to find the right person. The auditor supports the contractor and supervises the process from registration via the certification up to the conclusion.
The contractor enters into a contract with the auditor and a certification contract with the DGNB. There no contractual relationship between the DGNB and the auditor in order to guarantee the greatest possible degree of objectivity and independence.
