The British Assessment Bureau Background What we do
Download this presentation at Why are we here? Expressed simply, to save IFPSM members: –Time –Hassle –Cost –Reputation
Download this presentation at The world of certification and certifiers… The role of the International Standards Organization (ISO)… The role of the International Accreditation Forum (IAF)… The role of National Accreditation Bodies (NABs)… The importance of ISO 17021…
Download this presentation at I thought all certifiers were the same? The lack of legal requirements creates loops holes… Some certifiers are woefully short of competence… Some certifiers misrepresent themselves… Verification of the authority behind the certificate is the key!
Download this presentation at The safe bet… Check the IAF website online for the respective NAB… Drill-down from the NAB website to find the Certifier… If it checks out, all well and good… Don’t be misled by claims of ‘International Accreditation’
Download this presentation at In summary… you don’t need to gamble! Procurement professionals have a duty of care… A certificate of conformity isn’t valid until checked… It’s the same as checking references… Be confident and rest assured, by checking online.
Download this presentation at And finally… there are two checks to make! One… check the International Accreditation Forum (IAF) website to verify that the accreditation body claimed is listed (e.g. UKAS) Two… check the website of the respective National Accreditation Body to ensure the Certifier is listed (e.g. the British Assessment Bureau)
