Cybersecurity Program Manager Ashley Kamauf has been selected as one of only two people from the United States to represent the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) for the ISO/IEC 17020 Revisions Working Group
ISO/CASCO made the decision to revise ISO/IEC 17020 in December of 2022. Over the past few years, similar standards have been revised, and in order to more closely align with those standards, ISO/IEC 17020 will be revised as well. The updated standard will incorporate revisions determined by the working group, as well as items from the ILAC P15 publication.
A2LA’s Cybersecurity Program Manager Ashley Kamauf has been selected as one of only two people from the United States to represent the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) for the ISO/IEC 17020 Revision Working Group. Kamauf was nominated for the working group by Trace McInturff, A2LA’s Vice President of Accreditation Services and she was selected based on her extensive knowledge of the standard and pain points for organizations in the industry.
“I am very excited to participate in the working group and have the opportunity to impact the trajectory of the standard moving forward,” said Kamauf. “I believe my experience with both training and managing many different types of inspection bodies will be beneficial to the group in achieving our goals.”
ISO/IEC 17020 Working Group meetings will take place in Geneva, Switzerland, and the group will take up to three years to create, finalize, approve, and publish the revised standard.
“A2LA is very pleased that Ashley has been selected by ANSI as one of the United States experts to participate on the newly created ISO/IEC 17020 Working Group,” said Trace McInturff, Vice President, Accreditation Services. “Ashley brings a wealth of inspection expertise to the working group and we are happy to be able to support ISO/CASCO in this very critical activity.”
