I. INTRODUCTION TO CONFORMITY ASSESSMENT

ASME C&S Training Module B9


Importance of conformity assessment process l.jpg
IMPORTANCE OF CONFORMITY ASSESSMENT PROCESS

  • Conformity Assessment Process ensures

    • Products, services, or systems have the required characteristics

    • Characteristics are consistent from product to product, service to service, or system to system

    • Individuals can be evaluated to determine whether they meet the qualification requirements of an ASME standard

ASME C&S Training Module B9


Conformity assessment l.jpg
CONFORMITY ASSESSMENT

  • Definition (ISO/IEC Guide 2)

    “Any activity concerned with determining directly or indirectly that relevant requirements are fulfilled”

    Examples: Sampling; testing and inspection; evaluation; verification and assurance of conformity (supplier’s declaration); certification; registration; accreditation; approval

ASME C&S Training Module B9

CONFORMITY ASSESSMENT

  • ASME Program Types

    • Accreditation

    • Certification

    • Registration

ASME C&S Training Module B9


Accreditation l.jpg
ACCREDITATION

  • General definition (ISO/IEC Guide 2)

    “Procedure by which an authoritative body gives formal recognition that a body or person is competent to carry out specific tasks”

ASME C&S Training Module B9


Asme accreditation l.jpg
ASME ACCREDITATION

  • Applicability

    • Companies that supply a product or service covered by an ASME standard (not individuals)

    • Examples:
