    ISO/IEC 17065:2012 Conformity Assessment – Requirements for Bodies Certifying Products, Process, and Services

    It is a requirement to implement the ISO 17065:2012 Standard to enable Certification Bodies to provide ISO Certification. This is the Standard that assists organisations who are willing to provide ISO Certification as Third Party. It provides the framework for conformity assessments as well as what is required by an Accreditation body like the South African National Accreditation System (SANAS), United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS), Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle (DakkS) and other accreditation bodies.

    The Accreditation Bodies Audit the Certification Bodies to conform to ISO 17065:2012 which allows the Certification Bodies the process to understand the organisation’s requirements, the audit planning, execution, filing, submissions, Certification, and Surveillance Audits which are to be conducted with competent Auditors.
