After 30 years as a Quality Engineer, 10 as a Third Party Lead Auditor, I had a significant surprise. I simply saw a provider’s certification which did not have some certification marks. It did not mention an Accreditation Body. American National Accreditation Bureau (ANAB) is the only licensed body in the USA. They are licensed by International Accreditation Foundation (IAF). Accredited Registrars, like those that I perform third party evaluations for, are audited by an Accreditation Body for example ANAB. Some Registrars, working globally, are licensed by numerous Accreditation Bodies. Accreditation means that the Registrar has been audited, exactly like you, to make certain they conform regular, ISO 17021.
I contacted the “Registrar” who’d issued the certification with no accreditation mark. They were fast to respond with a letter that is attached. The letter says they utilize the assistance of Lead Auditors qualified through an IRCA approved training class using a minimum of 5 years business experience. IRCA is a European Accreditation body for training and certification of all employees. The USA equivalent is RABQSA. They are referencing the practice of the auditors not certification of these as a registrar. This unaccredited Registrar does not utilize Auditors that are certified by an Accreditation support!
This Corporation Apparently believes you ought to pay them for a Registrar so you have got a certificate but does not think they need to pay for certification. It might have the exact same price! You can say you audit yourself using even or perhaps un-certified auditors that are accredited to be sure you conform to a different regular or ISO 9001.
