Who has the final say on which subclauses are applicable from a given standard?

Hello everyone,

I am pretty new at this. I am wondering who is in charge of determining which subclauses are applicable from standards we want to prove our compliance with.

If the test report comes out of the test lab with a certain subclause marked "N/A", is there anyone during the TCF review or the audit who might dispute that? Or does the final determination rest with the test lab?

Test labs just test and consult with you prior to testing to determine the costs. You get better inputs with better test houses. Normally testing and reporting is the end event when you work with reputed test houses on a project basis for a new product. The particular standard to an extent guides you, however it is you and your own technical personnel who have to determine based on what has been designed. The technical review of the TCF done by the experts from NB do have the knowledge, however they may also need your guidance and technical justification to arrive on the common ground.
