How can you tell if an Inspection Body is accredited?
Accredited inspection bodies are able to issue inspection reports or certificates bearing the symbol of the accreditation body that provides the accreditation.
As an inspection body gains ISO/IEC 17020 accreditation for specific inspections, you should check that the inspection body is accredited for the inspections you need. This detail is specified in the Scope of Accreditation, which may be supplied by the inspection body or the accreditation body on request.
Accreditation bodies publish lists or directories of the inspection bodies they have accredited (www.scc.ca for Standards Council of Canada), together with contact details and information on their accredited inspection capabilities.
You can therefore contact the accreditation body and find out whether there are any accredited inspection bodies that can perform the inspections you require.
Alternatively, try contacting your national standards body or your ministry for industry or technology for the necessary contact details.
ENEFEN is accredited and you can find the scope of accreditation on our accreditation page.
