As a conformity assessment body, Brand Compliance confirms the reliability of its customers by issuing certificates for compliance with standards. CEO Christian Oudenbroek: “We stand for integrity. This means that we only issue a certificate from Brand Compliance if we have established that our customers meet the relevant standard. With every signature I put, I am sure of the delivered quality. Our integrity goes hand in hand with our reputation.”
Since 2004, Brand Compliance has covered various areas of the audit industry. When we were founded, we started with second party audits in the Automotive sector on compliance with the agreements between importers and car dealers. After this, we started conducting ISO 9001 certifications, the so-called third party audits. In addition to conducting second and third party audits, we have carried out inspection activities.
From there we were noticed by the Flemish government, and we were asked to apply to carry out “KMO-portefeuille” audits, a subsidy rule for innovation and entrepreneurship for Flemish SMEs. In 2013, we applied to carry out these audits.
Developments in the market showed that there was a great future in the field of information security and privacy. Since 2017, we have followed this up by obtaining accreditation for ISO 27001 and NEN 7510 (information security in healthcare). In addition, we have started developing our own standard and scheme in the field of GDPR certification.
Brand Compliance, with its head office in ‘s-Hertogenbosch, has experienced growth within and outside the Benelux. This led to us opening a branch in Sweden in 2019. Our office in Belgium has moved from Turnhout to Antwerp and in 2022 a second location in Belgium was opened at the Corda Campus in Hasselt.
All developments together have resulted in us having extensive in-house knowledge in the field of standards and scheme development and applying this to the needs of our customers. We distinguish ourselves from our competitors by developing new standards and schemes.

Our employees form the Human Capital of our organization and are therefore the most important core value. Ensuring that our employees are and remain competent is of the utmost importance. We implement this by continuously training, educating and informing employees.
