Over deze norm
This Guide outlines a general approach by which certification bodies can develop and apply product certification schemes utilizing requirements of an organization's quality management system. The provisions given in this Guide are not requirements for the accreditation of a product certification body and do not substitute the requirements of ISO/IEC Guide 65. The schemes contained in this Guide are for product certification only and in all cases involve the following principles: a) assessment of an organization's quality management system and its capability to consistently supply products conforming to specified requirements; b) testing, inspection or comparable verification of the product's conformity to scheme criteria and specified requirements; c) application of a suitable surveillance scheme to ensure continual conformity to specified requirements of products supplied by the organization; d) control of the mark of conformity and/or logo of the certification body. Within product certification schemes, it is possible for certification bodies to develop a variety of certification procedures to meet the needs of organizations with different quality management system capabilities. Whatever the form of scheme that is developed, the certification body retains the authority to certify or not. A certification body can at its discretion specify the scheme criteria in addition to those described in this Guide.
