How system certification is different from Product certification?
  Under system certification whole organization is audited by respective standard (eg. ISO 9001,14001,OHSAS 18001) but products are not tested in notified laboratory, So system mark (eg ISO 9001) can’t put on product whereas in product certification products are tested in notified laboratory so product certification mark (eg. CE Mark, ISI Mark) can be put on product.
