Eurolab: the accreditation and standardization weekly notice – 14 mei 2020Publicatiedatum: 14 mei, 2020
- IAF and fake certificates: We were recently made aware that the issue of fake certificates for medical devices was raised at the recent Database Management Committee meeting and one option being discussed is encouraging CBs to make available related management systems certificates on the CertSearch site, at least during the Covid-19 crisis. Product certificates would not be affected. A decision will be taken fairly quickly, likely within the next week or two.
- A PowerPoint file summarizing the main changes for the ISO-IEC Directives 2020 Part 1 is attached. The 16th Edition of the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 1, and the 11th Edition of the Consolidated ISO Supplement are now available in English.
- Attached is the agenda for the EA General Assembly to be held virtually on May 14. The relevant supporting documents are available upon request.
- Further to a previous call for EA comments, attached is the very last draft version (draft 8) of revised EA-3/12: EA Policy for the Accreditation of Organic Production Certification which takes into account the comments received and considered by the TFG. Endorsement of this final draft 8 is requested by Friday 22 MAY 2020. It will then be submitted to a 30 day ballot among EA members,
