(From Technical Committee) Witness Audits
The Annual Meeting supports the principle of random sampling for accreditation body witness audits of accredited certification / registration body activities, and that this be treated by certification / registration bodies as an obligation, not a favour. The Annual Meeting directs the Board to issue guidance requiring IAF Accreditation Body Members to require accredited certification / registration bodies to have enforceable arrangements with organizations holding an accredited certificate, to ensure access to witness the certification / registration bodies audit team performing an audit at the organization’s site.   [Note - the guidance in accordance with Resolution 2001-30 was added as an Annex to the IAF Guidance on the Application of ISO/IEC Guide 61 in May 2002]
