IIOC at the heart of work improving accreditation

The 2017 Mid-Term meetings of IAF and ILAC sees IIOC working with accreditation bodies, other certification bodies and stakeholders to improve the conformity assessment system.

The particular emphasis of the meetings is the review and development of processes and procedures to improve the accreditation of management system certification bodies, leading to improved auditing by these bodies.

IIOC is involved in a wide range of the meetings: notably co-convening the Management Systems Certification Working Group and the Task Force developing processes for the migration of the Health & Safety standard OHSAS 18001 to the new ISO 45001 standard. Other topics range from food safety to information security management certification.
