Virtual IAF34-9.1
2020-16
IAF COVID-19 FAQs
The General Assembly, acting on the recommendation of the Executive Committee, endorses the IAF COVID-19 Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) as developed and published by the IAF COVID-19 FAQ Task Force. The General Assembly further endorses the IAF COVID-19 FAQ Task Force to continue its work on a temporary basis dependent on the evolution of the current COVID-19 pandemic. The General Assembly acknowledges and accepts that standards and other normative documents do not cover specific requirements for all situations that can occur. In this case, IAF COVID-19 FAQs have regulated the unanticipated situation of the pandemic. For this reason, when an accreditation body or a conformity assessment body refers to an IAF COVID-19 FAQ, published by IAF, it is assumed to be operating not in contradiction or excluding any of the requirements included in the relevant international standards and/or other normative documents (see ISO/IEC 17011, § 4.6.2). Such assumption is on a temporary basis dependent on the evolution of the current COVID-19 pandemic. Conformity Assessment Bodies and Accreditation Bodies can implement the dispositions contained in IAF COVID-19 FAQs, but where the situation permits, priority should be given to the ordinary situation.
