Revised versions of IAF/ILAC A1 and A3 published

The latest editions of IAF/ILAC A1:03/2020 “IAF/ILAC MRA Multi-Lateral Mutual Recognition Arrangements (Arrangements): Requirement and Procedures for Evaluation of a Regional Group” and IAF/ILAC A3:03/2020 “IAF/ILAC MRAs: Multi-Lateral Mutual Recognition Arrangements (Arrangements): Template report for the peer evaluation of an Accreditation Body based on ISO/IEC 17011:2017″ have been published and are now available from here.

These documents are used in the evaluations of regional cooperation bodies and accreditation bodies and were revised to remove the ‘Concern’ category of finding. From the date of implementation, findings during an evaluation will be categorised as either nonconformities or comments.
