VCA on demand

Get access to experienced, well-trained and practical professionals

The Dutch VCA system is an independent standard that complies with European guidelines. The VCA system is currently valid in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Austria and Switzerland. In the Netherlands, in the case of a VCA or VCU certificate, companies need a health and safety expert. This expert must have at least a secondary safety expert (MVK) degree. You can suffice with your own H&S officer with a VOL-VCA or VIL-VCU certificate, if an external advisor with the right degrees can be called upon.

Is there no in-house expertise available? At DEKRA your company can sign up for on demand VCA expert support service. This gives you access to a permanent adviser from DEKRA, whom you can call on. With this service you fulfill the VCA and VCU requirements.

What does the on demand VCA expert support service provide?

  • A written agreement;
  • Access to one of our certified safety experts (at least MVK);
  • A copy of the degree of 'your' permanent adviser;
  • Annual access to a morning or afternoon of VCA-related services.

The written agreement and the copy of the consultant's degree are proof that the right expertise is associated with your company. You must be able to show these registrations to an auditor.

What do you use the demand VCA expert support service for?

You can benefit from the advisor’s support for obtaining and maintaining your VCA certificate. This includes:

  • Improving your VCA management system;
  • Conducting an internal audit;
  • Preparing or supervising the external audit;
  • Conducting an accident investigation;
  • Updating a Risk Inventory and Evaluation (RI&E);
  • Supporting actions arising from the audits or RI&E.


  • Our advisors are experienced, well-trained and practical professionals.
  • We have decades of experience in working for clients with VCA/VCU certificates.
  • We specialize in tailor-made solutions for all your safety challenges.
