Inspection body accreditation is the assessment and public recognition of the integrity, reliability and technical competence of an organization's inspection services.
The role of inspection bodies involves assessing the safety and fitness for use of specific products and materials and, confirming that the associated facilities, equipment and systems are appropriate to the work being performed. However, inspections are certainly not limited to physical assets and may also include an assessment of services.
Scope of accreditation
The scope of accreditation for SCC’s inspection bodies program includes electrical safety, medical gas piping systems, and commercial and industrial gas-fired installations.
Benefits of SCC accreditation
SCC accreditation demonstrates an organization’s competence to manage and perform activities defined by its specific program scope of accreditation. Through SCC accreditation, certification bodies are able to obtain independent, third-party, credible test results for themselves and for their customers.
SCC accreditation helps certification bodies deliver services with confidence and attract new customers. As a signatory member to several international mutual recognition and multilateral agreements, Accreditation Program is internationally recognized.
SCC’s Criteria and Procedures section highlights each international standard and Canadian procedural document whose requirements must be met for a particular accreditation program.
