Changes in the Scope of Accreditation

CHANGES IN THE SCOPE OF ACCREDITATION

EXTENDING THE SCOPE OF ACCREDITATION

In order to extend the scope of accreditation, an accredited conformity assessment body can submit an application at any point in time during the accreditation validity period, which also includes extension of the accreditation scope in the accreditation renewal process, but in this case the application for extension of the scope of accreditation is not submitted. Instead, the conformity assessment activities for which the conformity assessment body has not been accredited are identified in the requested scope of accreditation. ATS shall review the application relating to the extension of scope the conformity assessment body applied for and shall make a decision on whether the assessment for the purpose of extending the scope of accreditation shall be performed during a regular surveillance assessment/reassessment or as a separate procedure, at the request of a conformity assessment body.

Extension to accreditation scope does not affect the accreditation validity period.

REDUCING THE SCOPE OF ACCREDITATION

Accreditation scope of an accredited conformity assessment body can be reduced at the request of a conformity assessment body or on the recommendation of the assessment team, after finishing the assessment procedure or on the basis of the proposal made by the Accreditation Committee.

The conformity assessment body has the right to appeal if it is not pleased with the ATS decision to reduce the accreditation scope.
