Certified Companies

The Madeira Promotion Bureau promotes a strategy for certifying Madeira as a tourism destination. It has partnered with SGS, a world leader in certification, to develop an international certification system for good practices in biohazard management (COVID-19 or others).

This programme is aimed at all companies in the tourism sector on the islands of Madeira and Porto Santo. There are currently more than fifty certified companies or audited companies in the process of certification. All companies adhering to this certification program are clearly identified with the seal ‘Madeira Safe to Discover’.


This is a service certification based on a technical specification that takes into account specific criteria for each sector, divided into the following modules:

  1. Management and planning;
  2. Health and safety;
  3. Workplace control;
  4. Cleaning and disinfection;
  5. Infrastructure maintenance;
  6. Monitoring;
  7. Testing.

If a company meets and guarantees the certification requirements, SGS will issue a good practice certificate and APM will issue certification signage, which the company may display as evidence of its commitment and dedication to safety.
