The IAF Validation and Job Task Analysis Report for Accreditation Body (AB) Assessors has been finalized and approved. This report was designed to validate the “generic” tasks, knowledge and skills of an Accreditation Body Assessor. The report describes in detail the process and results of this study to include a content outline and learning objectives that can be used for designing and implementing training programs. The task list can also be used to design evaluation tools for AB assessors. At the present time, this document is informative. It is intended that a mandatory document based on this information will be developed in the future.
