AFNOR Group acquires the certification body Quaser Certificazioni and strengthens its position in Italy


AFNOR Group, which is present internationally through its training and certification activities, is strengthening its presence on the Italian market by acquiring Quaser Certificazioni.

A historical player, partner of the Italian resilience plan
Headed by G.E. Giordano, Quaser Certificazioni operates in the fields of management system certification, competency certification, inspection and training.
Founded 20 years ago in Italy, this major certification body has a portfolio of more than 1,000 clients across Europe, including companies listed on the FTSE MIB (Milan stock exchange index), numerous professional federations and consumer associations. Its clients are mainly in the general services sector (cleaning, engineering services, lawyers, etc.), tax monitoring and control (control of automatic cash registers) and construction." In Italy, the government has understood that recovery requires confidence : it relies on certification bodies like ours to better identify reliable partners ", says G.E Giordano.

A broader range of certifications for the AFNOR Group
AFNOR Group was already present in Italy. Through this new acquisition, it intends to provide its customers with greater coverage of European markets and facilitate access to certifications locally. " Quaser is like a laboratory for the world of services: our French and international customers will discover innovative and new certifications in the areas of protection against harassment, inclusion, for the societal part, but also more business, for what concerns consumption, safety, inspection, etc .

Thanks to this acquisition, our ambition is to become a major player in the certification and training market in Italy, and more broadly internationally," said Myriam Augereau-Landais, CEO of AFNOR International.
