Focus of the technical unit
The Certification of Persons and Management Systems (Cross-Sector) technical unit manages the accreditation of certification bodies for management systems in accordance with DIN EN ISO/IEC 17021-1 for various management system certification standards and for persons in accordance with DIN EN ISO/IEC 17024.
Accreditation for the world’s most frequently certified standards, ISO 9001 (quality), ISO 14001 (environment) and ISO 45001 (occupational health and safety) also falls within the remit of the technical unit, as does the accreditation of certification bodies for persons who for example certify auditors for these standards.
A prerequisite for the inclusion of new conformity assessment schemes in the DAkkS portfolio of accreditation schemes is a scheme evaluation. Interested scheme owners can find all essential information, including information on how to apply, on the DAkkS website.
