Becoming third-party certification body

If our company would like to become a third-party certification body, how do we go about this, where do we register and what processes need to be done. We are already writing SOP’s and QMS for device companies,  how can we get to become auditors and where do we register as such.

First, you need to get certificates that you are lead auditors for certain standards. Then you need to prepare all necessary documentation stated in standard ISO 17021-1 Conformity assessment - Requirements for bodies providing auditing and certification of management systems, Part 1: Requirements. When you prepare it, you need to pass the accreditation audit conducted by some Competent authority or National accreditation body. Each country has its own Competent authority or National accreditation body.

Only when you receive an Accreditation certificate from a Competent authority or Accreditation body, you can market yourself as a Certification body.

Here are some more information regarding certification body.
