EN ISO IEC 17065 CONFORMITY ASSESSMENT. REQUIREMENTS FOR BODIES CERTIFYING PRODUCTS, PROCESSES AND SERVICES
Product certification has become an important tool for businesses to show that they meet requirements, and to increase market penetration.Through third-party activities, it is also
used to increase consumer confidence.Regulators use product certification
extensively to verify minimum safety,energy, electrical compatibility, and other
technical regulations.Manufacturers can also use product certifications as part of their criteria when choosing suppliers. Retailers, as well, have more confidence selling products that are certified.
Product certification confirms that a product, process or service has been inspected, tested and approved. But for this to be true, the relevant certification body must operate consistently in an impartial and competent way. A product certification performed by one certification body, should be equivalent to that done by another when the same product standard is used.
Product certification is probably the most visible type, as many certification bodies allow complying products to carry their mark of conformity. Consumers, regulators and other stakeholders then know that a product has been independently tested and meets the specified requirements.
It is, therefore, vital that product certification bodies operate in accordance with ISO/IEC 17065. This allows them to demonstrate that they are competent, impartial and reliable.The International Accreditation Forum, which is responsible for the mutual recognition of accredited product certification bodies, has agreed on a three-year transition period for certification bodies to demonstrate conformity with the new ISO/IEC 17065. All accredited certification bodies will have to comply with this standard.
