in its capacity as the governing/competent body
Explanation:
I'd say, because the organization is responsible for certifying xyz

though hoheitlich is often translated as sovereign, national, IMO here thee term is being used more in the sense of *having jurisdiction*

*governing authority/agency* would be another option (thanks to EvP et Cie)
