IAF has created a new website for the control of certificates issued under accreditation: https://www.iafcertsearch.org/

Companies and governments are calling for more transparency between organizations and their supply chains. They rely on accredited certifications to make important decisions during the development of their supply chains.
Certified supply chains are a way for companies and governments to demonstrate that they have compliant and transparent global supply chains.
IAF CertSearch was established by the International Accreditation Forum (IAF) and its members so that certifications accredited by the world can be validated. IAF CertSearch is a global database where users can search and validate the status of the accredited certification issued by a certification body that has been accredited by an IAF signatory member accreditation body under the main ISO/IEC 17021-1.
IAF CertSearch currently aggregates data from about 70 accreditation bodies and about 1,311 certification bodies to make it easy and easy to validate an organization’s certifications.
IAF CertSearch also provides organizations with information about the accredited network, which includes a list of all accreditation and certification bodies worldwide

IAF has developed an IAFCertSearch brand that connects to the official database.
Companies that have an active accredited certification in the IAF CertSearch database will have the option to include the IAFCertSearch brand on their website.
It is a digital trademark that allows a user to click on the Brand and direct it to the profile of the organization in the IAFCertSearch database where it can validate the active certifications held by the organization.
The IAFCertSearch brand will appear on an organization’s website only if it has an active certification.
If the certification status changes and is not active, the trademark will be automatically removed from the organization’s website in real time.
The IAFCertSearch brand should only be used as a digital trademark.
IAFCertSearch trademark CANNOT be used on documents
