BACKGROUND

For efficiency and cost saving reasons and to furthering the level of collaboration with ILAC (and IAF) the CAB-ILAC TP agreed to recommend that based on the re-assessments carried out by the ABs using IEC CA Systems Technical Experts, IEC CA Systems will fully take into account the results of the assessments without repeating their own on-site re-assessments.

CAB Decisions 25/16

New concept for collaboration with ILAC using an assessors’ pool

The CAB supports the “new concept of collaboration” described in CAB/806/R and the use of a common pool of assessors, consisting principally of the IEC CA Systems’ Registered Technical Assessors.

NEW PROPOSED (and Agreed) CONCEPT Delegation it was agreed that the wording being used by IEC C A Systems in their certificates of Approval and/or Competence, in referencing ISO/IEC 17025 together with the System’s Rules and Operational Documents, does not cause anymore concerns from both ILAC and IAF perspective.

Outcome of the Vancouver Executive Meeting

It was agreed to proceed further with implementing the new model over the 2010 re-assessment (or else called surveillance) programme

ACTION: The CAB and IAF/ILAC General Assemblies to approve the agreed model of assessment collaboration


It was further agreed that

The IEC CA System should provide to both the IAF and ILAC Secretariats their re-assessment plan 2010

IAF and ILAC Secretariat will circulate the IEC CA Systems re-assessment plans to their Member ABs.

When the relevant CBs and TLs are falling under the re-assessment plan/cycle of the relevant AB, the latter will contact the relevant IEC CA System’s Secretariat and request a list of Technical Experts.

The relevant IEC CA System provides the requesting AB a list of registered Technical Experts to choose from, that are capable of covering the scope to be assessed.

It was further agreed that:


It was further agreed that1

AB will appoint the re-assessment team, basically composed by a AB’s Lead Assessor and IEC CA System Technical Experts

The initial proposal is for the Assessment Team to trial the use of the IECEE Assessment Report Form, with the understanding that on-going monitoring will be undertaken by the tripartite IEC/CAB-ILAC-IAF committee to improve the relevant Assessment Report as required.

AB will forward the Re-Assessment Report to the relevant IEC CA System

IEC CA System will administrate the Re-Assessment Report provided by the AB as being equal to a Re-Assessment Report of a direct System Re-Assessment.

It was further agreed that:

Instead…………. by a AB’s Lead Assessor and IEC CA System Technical Experts

It is proposed to establish a tripartite Steering Committee

IEC/CAB – ILAC - IAF


Achievements from the executive meeting iec cab ilac iaf

Terms of Reference of the Steering Committee by a AB’s Lead Assessor and IEC CA System Technical Experts

  • Whilst awaiting the definition of the new terms of reference, the Steering Committee will develop and facilitate the implementation of the following elements of collaboration:

  • Common understanding of the requirements laid down in ISO/IEC 17025 and ISO/IEC Guide 65 applicable to the Electrotechnical Sector

  • Re-assessments of Testing Laboratories and Certification Bodies using IEC CA Systems expertise

  • Use of harmonized assessment report form

  • Use of harmonized assessment preparation guidelines

Steering Committee IEC CAB - ILAC - IAF by a AB’s Lead Assessor and IEC CA System Technical Experts

It is assumed that the Steering Committee cannot deal with details pertaining to technical or administrative issues and therefore the structure should be such to also appoint dedicated ad hoc Task Forces with a well defined assignment and reporting to the Steering Committee


Achievements from the executive meeting iec cab ilac iaf

Steering Committee IEC CAB - ILAC - IAF by a AB’s Lead Assessor and IEC CA System Technical Experts

The role and tasks of the Steering Committee is to deal with Policy and Strategy issues whereby the technical issues shall be dealt with by ad hoc Task Forces composed by dedicated experts which will be tasked to deliberate, advise and prepare documents for formal approval by the High Level Committee prior implementation

Tripartite MoU :IEC-CAB, ILAC, IAF


Memorandum of understanding

In light of the new directions that the Parties are taking and considering that the ILAC-IEC MoU is due for revision in 2010, it would be an ideal opportunity for a tripartite MoU to be developed between IEC, ILAC and IAF that also addresses the new proposals being discussed and agreed during the Executive Meeting in Vancouver.
