IFCI Register

IFCI Register is a certification body for the Fitcert.eu certification scheme managed by NEN - https://www.nen.nl/fitnesscentra-aantoonbaar-veilig-en-hygienisch-met-fitcert-certificaat, supported by EuropeActive and the European fitnessindustrie.

IFCI Register is the result of a partnership between Raymond van Oerle, who spent two decades designing, founding, expanding and managing Fitness clubs throughout the EU, and Giel Tettelaar, Chairman of the EU Notified Body EMCI Register.

Through this combination a certification body has been created that has the best of both worlds. With the aim of certifying in an efficient manner together with companies.

When it comes to certification we believe in doing things differently; through shortlines, a personal approach and a focus on efficiently.

IFCI Register embraces the core philosophies of a startup mentatility; embracing new ideas, reacting/moving quickly, automation and innovation, passion, cooperation and of course a healthy does of pragmatism.

We see the potential of the Fitcert scheme to be more than a box-ticking excercise. Using our approach we believe Fitcert can truly elevate the Fitness industry to the next level, ensuring real added value to the quality and operations of your club.


IFCI Register is a certification body run by people who understand the industry and you. We understand that Fitcert should be about auditors who understand the sector and are your partner in going through the certification process. Certification should help elevate the industry and be one of the tools that allow us to rebuild the industry better than ever. IFCI Register is here to realise this goal.
