What are the “applicable requirements” that Internal Resources must meet in order for my organization to comply with this clause?
My organization has invited numerous possible stakeholders to be part of our “Mechanism for Safeguarding Impartiality,” but all of those stakeholders have declined to participate.
Does my organization’s “Publicly Available Information” need to explicitly address each of the procedures called out in this clause if one or more are not applicable to our certification activities?
Are expedite fees or volume discounts on certification fees considered discriminatory or undue financial conditions?
Is our organization required to keep records of all of the risks to impartiality we have investigated, even those which were determined not to be actual risks?
Does our Certification Agreement need to list who is responsible (our organization, or the client) for the evaluation of a product when the scheme allows or requires the product to be evaluated before an application for certification can be filed?
