Highlights of the ZED certification scheme

  • Zero Defect Zero Effect (ZED) is an indigenous, integrated & holistic maturity assessment model that aims at enhancing the global competitiveness of MSMEs by gauging the manufacturer’s maturity in several disciplines viz. Quality, Production, Safety, Design, Environment, Energy, IPR etc. and gradually building their capabilities to become world class.
  • MSMEs adopting ZED would be driven towards responsible manufacturing, and will not only benefit in terms of enhanced profit, strengthened processes & systems but also by being identified as MSMEs with difference.

Process involved in ZED certification scheme

  • The Free Online Registration of the applicant MSME where a ZED ID is generated.
  • The next stage is a Free Online Self-Assessment (OSA) on parameters relevant to the enterprise. This stage is intended to make the MSME understand the level of its own systems and processes.
  • In the next step of Desktop Assessment (DA), the applicant MSME uploads relevant photos/documents as evidence supporting self-assessment done earlier.
  • Following this step, a Site Assessment (SA) of the applicant’s manufacturing unit is done. The ZED certified assessors carry out a physical assessment of the enterprise and the entire process is carried out with the help of a mobile/tab application ensuring ‘ZERO USE OF PAPER’.
  • The applicant MSME may also opt for a ZED qualified Consultant for handholding.

"ZED is mother of all certificates"
Mr. Sanjay Singh

"Awareness is the highlight of this program. There were a lot of techniques that we didn't know existed. For example, CAPA and other techniques, which if implemented correctly will give you huge profits. We got to know this because of ZED. I highly recommend ZED certification to all MSMEs."
Mr. Naveen Gupta

"ZED certificate has various different certificates combined together in one place which otherwise we have to get from different agencies and different certificates. If we take ZED certificate then we won't need to go for various multiple certificates and there are many processes which are not available in other certificates but are available in ZED"
Mr. Satyavir Singh
