Certification holder

Hi, I have a client who is seeking to be certified. However, the business is part of a larger company network. They desire to have the larger company be on the certificate, when they seek certification. Could you advise what the issues are in relation to this? They will still define the scope based on the actual assets impacted. It is just that the certificate would be issued to the holding company?

Answer:

If this customer is legally a branch of the larger company you can have the larger company on the certificate. On the other hand, if these organizations are legally separated companies you cannot define the larger company to be the certification holder. The whole point is the legal relation between these organizations.
