Look! IAF Mandatory Documents (MD Series) as of May 2016

Departing from the traditional approach of issuing Guidance and Policy documents, the International Accreditation Forum decided to "put more teeth" in it's portfolio and created a set of mandatory documents:

Check this link
Quote:
5. IAF Mandatory Documents (MD Series)
IAF publishes Mandatory Documents which are required to be used by accreditation bodies when accrediting certification/registration bodies to assure that they operate their programs in a consistent and equivalent manner. IAF Mandatory documents are not intended to establish, interpret, subtract from or add to the requirements of any ISO/IEC Guide or Standard, but simply to assure consistent application of those Guides or Standards.

Copies of all published IAF Mandatory Documents are available below.

IAF MD 1:2007 Certification of Multiple Sites Based on Sampling
(Issue 1, issued on 20 November 2007; Application from 15 September 2008)
This document is mandatory for the consistent application of Clause 9.1.5. of ISO/IEC 17021:2006 and is based upon guidance previously provided in IAF GD2: 2005 Annex 3 and IAF GD6:2006, clause G.5.3.5 - G.5.3.13. All clauses of ISO/IEC 17021:2006 continue to apply and this document does not supersede any of the requirements in that standard. This mandatory document is not intended exclusively for Quality Management Systems (QMS) and Environmental Management Systems (EMS) and may be used for other management systems. However, relevant standards may provide specific requirements for multiple sites or preclude the use of sampling (eg. ISO/IEC 27006, ISO/TS 22003).
IAF MD 2:2007 Transfer of Accredited Certification of Management Systems
(Issue 1, issued on 14 December 2007; Application from 15 September 2008)
This document is mandatory for the consistent application of Clause 9.1.1. of ISO/IEC 17021:2006 and is based upon guidance previously provided in IAF GD2: 2005 Annex 4 and IAF GD6:2006 Annex 2. All clauses of ISO/IEC 17021:2006 continue to apply and this document does not supersede any of the requirements in that standard. This mandatory document is not intended exclusively for Quality Management Systems (QMS) and Environmental Management Systems (EMS) and may be used for other management systems.
IAF MD 3:2008 Advanced Surveillance and Recertification Procedures (ASRP)
(Issue 1, issued on 1 February 2008; Application from 15 September 2008)
This document provides normative criteria for advanced surveillance and recertification procedures (ASRP) for consistent application of clause 9.1.1 of ISO/IEC 17021:2006 for determining subsequent adjustments to the audit program. This document addresses only Quality Management Systems (QMS) and Environmental Managements Systems (EMS), in which IAF members have had experience of implementing ASRP or its predecessor methodologies. The use of ASRP is not mandatory, but if an accreditation body wishes to permit their accredited certification body and its client(s) to opt for the use of ASRP, it is a requirement of IAF that the certification body and its client(s) conform to this document and be able to demonstrate conformity to the accreditation body.

Re: IAF - New IAF Mandatory Documents (MD Series)

A fourth mandatory document has been added to the list
Quote:
IAF MD 4:2008 Use of Computer Assisted Auditing Techniques ("CAAT") for Accredited Certification of Management Systems
(Issue 1, issued on 15 May 2008; Application from 15 September 2008)
This document is mandatory for the consistent application of ISO/IEC 17021:2006 when computer assisted auditing techniques are used as part of the audit methodology. The use of CAAT is not mandatory, but if a certification body and its client opt to use CAAT, it is mandatory that they conform to this document and are able to demonstrate conformity to the accreditation body.

Exclamation Re: New IAF Mandatory Documents (MD Series)

The IAF has just released the latest and very important Mandatory Document:
IAF MD 5:2008 Duration of QMS and EMS Audits
(Issue 1, issued on 1 February 2009; Application from 1 May 2009)
This mandatory document was derived from the guidance previously available in two documents, IAF GD2:2005 Annex 2 and IAF GD6:2006 Annex 1. It provides mandatory provisions and guidance for CABs to determine the audit duration for stage 1 and stage 2 initial audits, surveillance audits and recertification audits.
A simple methodology is used to determine the audit duration (stage 1 plus stage 2) from tables based on the effective number of client personnel. For EMS audits, the duration varies according to the complexity of the audit. Factors which could add to, or subtract from the time are applied and checks made to ensure specified caveats are applied and any reductions in time do not exceed requirements specified in this document. The justification for the calculated time is recorded for future audit by an accreditation body.

Re: New IAF Mandatory Documents (MD Series)

I was wondering when this would come out. Using the IAF Guidance to Guide 62 seemed odd considering that ISO Guide 62 has been obsolete for a while...
