The MicroVal initiative has created the MicroVal Rules and Certification Scheme.
To become MicroVal certified the following steps are required:
MicroVal certified methods will be published on the MicroVal website (MV Validated Methods) with an abstract of the technical report.
An auditor may perform a renewal audit on the production site. In sections 11, 12 and Annex K of the MV Rules, the audit schedule and the needed documentation for certificate renewal are explained. The manufacturer has to provide the MicroVal Certification Body with documentation about the alternative method in order to renew the certificate and to show that the method has not changed since the first validation.
The latest version of the MicroVal Rules and Certification Scheme are available for download:
The MicroVal validation system is approved by the EU as a ISO 16140 validation as prescribed in Commission Regulation 2073/2005.
