ISO/ IEC 17021 Resource requirement (need help)

#1
Dear all,

I'm a trainee auditor in a certification company which is preparing to apply to our National Accreditation Board.
We only have two employees who are trainee auditors including me. We have no prior experience with the ISO standards or whatsoever that relates with ISO. And a foreign consulting company is teaching us to conduct Manual and procedures/ regulations for our CB in accordance with the ISO/IEC 17021 standard. We have to write manual and procedures which will be used in our CB but the company teaching us only said how to write the procedures and that make difficulties.

So, I wonder if there's anyone who know the documents that I can see as references for ISO/IEC 17021, please let me know.

Thanks John :) Most appreciated. I can get many reference in that document but what I don't understand is they excluded some of the requirements of the standard and/or combined them as a whole. But for us, we can't do that. They will say it is nonconformity. So, can you explain it ?

May I suggest you list what you see as evidence of the nonconformities with ISO/IEC 17021 and ask the BIS itself?

But first determine:

1. Does the standard allow exclusions, as in the BIS case with outsourcing?
2. Where does the standard preclude the combination of its requirements?
3. What makes you sure these would be nonconformities?

BIS would probably object unless you can cite the specific requirement from ISO/IEC 17021, the evidence of failing to meet the requirement and the nature of each nonconformity.

This exercise may also aid your learning.

First of all, our CB will apply to our national accreditation body (AB) but the problem is that AB is also starting to run. My country is Myanmar and our AB isn't still accredited by IAF. And they don't have any published any information for applying a CB.
Only one information is available which is they will be coorporated with SAC (Singaporean accreditation council) to conduct the audit.
