Qualitop was founded in 1996 by Dr. med. G. Bachmann (then Helvetia) P. Eigenmann (Premium Certification Solutions GmbH) on behalf of the health insurers Concordia, Helvetia, KFW Winterthur and SWICA founded as an association according to ZGB Article 60 ff.
The Qualitop label has been managed and represented by the Fitness Switzerland interest group since 2015. IG Fitness is made up of key representatives from the movement and health promotion industry. Through certification, movement and health providers undertake to maintain, evaluate and develop the quality of their services. The Qualitop label makes this commitment visible.
The Qualitop certificate distinguishes good movement and health-promoting providers and pursues three overarching goals:
- Improve the transparency of the description of movement and health promotion services and services for consumers.
- To ensure the quality of movement and health providers in the sense of market-relevant standards and to promote continuous optimization.
- To create a basis for official decisions (admission to offer collective and individual training, subsidies, etc.).
This standard is regularly reviewed and further developed.
