Certification of products update on future Standard

Issue 26 – April 2011

The ISO Committee on conformity assessment (ISO/CASCO) Working Group 29 met from 7 – 9 February 2011 in Geneva to resolve the comments received on the second Committee Draft (CD) of the future Standard for Conformity assessment – Requirements for bodies operating product certification schemes, ISO/IEC 17065.

This second CD was approved by more than 95 % of the ISO/CASCO members and benefiting from this large approval rating, the WG succeeded to significantly improve the clarity of the document. A decision was taken to progress the document further and the Draft International Standard (DIS) ballot will be opened.
