Ok We have pre assessment last week.
Well the findings of ISO/ IEC 17020 audit is" all equipment shall be calibrated from accredited calibration lab(s))"
I could not find any such requirements from ILAC web pages or otherwise.
Can anyone shed light on any such requirement?

:thanks:

It would help to have the full text of the findings, including the reference to ISO/IEC 17020, so we know where it comes from...

I don't currently have access to the standard, so perhaps the poster would also like to post what their copy says...under that clause, because ILAC etc isn't the place to look, the standard is!

Neither ISO/IEC 17020, ILAC, nor APLAC have that requirement. However, since you are in Canada and likely dealing with SCC, then check the CAN series documents as that requirement may be there. If you are working with a different AB, then their documents may require it.

Our Registrar Body Required us to Have a SANAS Accredited Calibration Company to do our calibrations and supply these certificates, That meant our registrar body did not have to test/ verify the calibration as this was done through an accredited company recognised by our National Accreditation Body called SANAS.

The original findings is "Equipments should be calibrated from accredited laboratories to ensure competent & traceability".

OK -so what references did the auditor use to a requirement? Is it from a section of ISO/IEC 17020, or their accreditation rules or what?

If this was all that was reported, you should take it up with the accreditation body. The reported issue is incomplete, as you've stated it here.
