Re: MDSAP - What if the company is interested in only 2/5 of those countries?

In Reply to Parent Post by Jane's View Post

I've sat through an informative BSI webinar about MDSAP and this was one of the questions. The presenter replied that yes, you would be audited to all 5 jurisdiction requirements but are required to comply only with the requirements for the country(ies) you are selling in. She also added that registrars need to prove their competence by auditing all 5 regions and their report will contain all the findings (including those you are not required to comply with) and their report will go to all 5 jurisdiction regulatory bodies. The good part is that those findings which you are not required to comply with are not NCs - you do not need to initiate actions to address them (until you decide to enter the respective market).

That was clear as mud now, was it
Clear as mud, it is...

Sounds like a big waste of resources to me. The up side is that it provides a compliance roadmap upfront, in case the manufacturer decides to go into a new jurisdiction. Still, more of a waste if you ask me (but no one does ).
