Abstract [en]

On the basis of two empirical cases (the market of motor vehicle inspection and the market of management certification) this paper analyses different strategies used to make these markets credible and trustworthy. The market actors are referred to as risk organizers and the strategies used as risk management strategies. These risk management strategies are undertaken both by the market actors themselves, and by state authorities and/or NGOs. Through different organizational solutions, authority for the verification activities is gained. Combining theories of the risk-society state, organizational analyses of standards as transnational regulations, with the critical literature on auditing, the paper explains how the expanding market of verifications such as vehicle inspection and management certification can appear stable and credible.
