COVID-19 restrictions have seen a significant increase in the use of remote techniques for auditing and assessing providers of conformity assessment activities as well as evaluating the accreditation bodies that provide these services.
IAF, ILAC and ISO have worked together to produce a survey to better understand the views of the conformity assessment community and those that rely on the results of conformity assessment, such as regulators, on the use of remote techniques for audit/assessment/evaluation activities. The survey seeks to gain input from the perspective of those carrying out the auditing/assessing or evaluation activities, as well as those subject to the activity and also those reliant on the outcome of these activities.
We encourage you to please complete the survey for your own organisation and/or as an individual carrying out a remote activity, and to also share the survey link with your customers, stakeholders and any others you feel may wish to contribute information for this survey.
The survey will run until 8 August 2021 and can be accessed via the following link: https://survey.alchemer.eu/s3/90343186/IAF-ILAC-ISO-Survey-on-Remote-Audit-Assessment-Evaluation
