Elettronica Oggi is the first and unique Italian magazine performing an audit process on its circulation. Since this year, VNU has chosen to work with BVQi, so replacing BPA certification. This is due to the more effectiveness and completeness that the BVQi auditing is able to guarantee. Like the BPA auditing, BVQi certification has –as a final result- a statement declaring the quality of the distribution lists of the magazine. However –and this is the very interesting plus- the auditing involves also the quality certification of the company processes. So, the guarantee for the advertisers id double: BVQi audit not only the quality of the target readers, but also the quality of the methods and procedures establishing the circulation processes.
