Certificates for thousands of suppliers are available for download directly from suppliers’ in-depth profiles, which include capabilities, equipment lists, product information, brands carried, demographics, ownership and diversity information, video plant tours and product demonstrations to help in the decision to add suppliers to the shortlist.

Certification is one of six powerful applications available on, which helps engineers and supply chain professionals solve their most difficult sourcing challenges, and discover new suppliers.
