Accreditation in accordance with EN ISO/IEC 17024
With accreditation in accordance with EN ISO/IEC 17024, certification bodies can gain confidence in their performance, because application of the standard promotes the international comparability of this conformity assessment service. In contrast to other types of certifications, one of the characteristic functions of the certification of persons is to conduct an examination, which uses objective criteria to measure competence and scoring. EN ISO/IEC 17024 defines additional requirements in this regard with a view to ensuring the objectivity of procedures and minimising the risk of a conflict of interest.
