Supporting the acceptance of Conformity
Assessment Bodies (CAB’s) results in Africa
Pan African Accreditation Cooperation (AFRAC)
The aim is to ensure the acceptance of our goods and service in Africa based
on the acceptance of our testing, inspection and certification results.
–
South Africa through SANAS hold the Chair and Secretariat of AFRAC;
–
MoU signed between AFRAC, African Standards Organisation (ARSO), African Electro

(AFRIMETS);
–
The above cooperation known as the Pan African Quality Infrastructure (PAQI)
approved by the African Union (AU) Council of Ministers of Trade (CAMI) and will be
table at the upcoming Heads of AU States meeting early new year for endorsement
Support for Conformity Assessment
Bodies (CAB’s)
• MCEP : a Department of Trade and Industry

RE-ASSESSMENT AND ASSOCIATED
DOCUMENTATION REVIEWS
Linda Grundlingh
Field Manager: Inspection
2013 Communication Meetings
RE-ASSESSMENTS
ISO/IEC 17011 clause 7.11.1:
• Re-assessment is similar to an Initial
assessment as described in clauses 7.5 to
7.9, except that experience gained during
previous assessments shall be taken into
account.
• During the August 2011 peer evaluation, it
was brought to our attention that we did
not comply with clauses 7.5.10, 7.6 &
7.11.1 in that we did not conduct
document reviews prior to Re-assessment.
SANAS CORRECTIVE ACTION
•
Re-assessments are conducted at least 3-months
(6-months in regulatory fields) prior to the start
of each new accreditation cycle.
•
Re-assessment
visits
will
involve
a
comprehensive re-examination of the facility’s
accredited activities at the beginning of each
new cycle, and will be similar to the Initial
assessment.
•
This includes a full documentation review.
RECENT CHANGES
•
The Re-assessment process has been revised to
include a re-application process which is
mandatory, followed by the review of facility
documents prior to the Re-assessment.
•
This means that as of 01 April 2013, each facility
is required to re-apply for accreditation at least
6-months prior to, and in the case of Inspection
Bodies 9-months prior to the expiry of their
Certificate and Schedule of Accreditation.
WHAT HAS CHANGED?
1. On re-application, each facility will need to
complete the relevant revised F14
application form and submit it to SANAS
with the relevant documentation as
prescribed in each application form.
2. This will include the facilities Management
System Documentation (Quality manual),
along with specific information or
documents as specified in each application
(Checklists etc.)
WHAT HAS CHANGED?
3. On receipt of the application, SANAS will
conduct a review of the information
submitted.
4. SANAS will arrange for a Re-assessment
approximately 3-months prior to, and in the
case of Inspection Bodies 6-months prior to
the expiry of the Certificate and Schedule of
Accreditation.
WHAT IF A FACILITY DOES
NOT RE-APPY?
1. Where SANAS has not received the
application for Re-assessment, the Reassessment will not be scheduled.
2. The facility’s accreditation will expire on the
expiry of the Certificate and Schedule of
accreditation.
HOW CAN THIS BE
PREVENTED?
• To prevent any periods of non-accreditation,
or to prevent losing your accreditation status,
facilities must re-apply within the timelines
stipulated by SANAS. These are:
• At least 6-months prior to, and in the case of
Inspection Bodies 9-months prior to the
expiry date of their Certificate and Schedule
of Accreditation).
IMPLEMENTATION TIME
LINE
Facilities should have submitted their
applications already for Certificates expiring in
October and November 2013, however, if this
has not yet been done, SANAS will allow a grace
period and still accept the applications for Reassessment at this stage.
WHAT ELSE HAS CHANGED?
• Whilst reviewing the re-application process,
SANAS also took the opportunity to review
the current Accreditation Agreement.
• Decrease the administrative burden of
obtaining a signed accreditation agreement
from each and every applicant.
• Also decrease the risk of not having a
contractual arrangement with our accredited
facilities.
WHAT ARE THE
IMPLICATIONS
• Once an applicant signs an application form,
they will automatically accept the Terms and
Conditions of Accreditation.
• Very soon SANAS will implement an on-line
system to accept the Terms and Conditions
and submit the application.
• F 147 - SANAS Terms and Conditions for
Accreditation
• F 199 - SANAS Terms and Conditions for
GLP/GCP Compliance.
DOCUMENTATION REVIEW FINDINGS
• In the case of an Initial assessment, a
maximum period of 6-months is allowed
for applicant facilities to address the
document review findings, after which the
application will cease.
• For Re-assessments, SANAS will not
require evidence of corrective actions
prior to the re-assessment, as these will
be verified during the re-assessment.
BRANCH FACILITIES
• If branch facilities operate under the same
management system as the Head Office:
• The checklists submitted by the Head
Office as well as the Lead Assessor’s
document review report will be sent to any
other Lead Assessor(s) appointed to
conduct
assessment(s)
at
branch
facilities.
