The Standards Council of Canada (SCC) offers internationally recognized accreditation programs for inspection bodies. SCC accreditation shows that an organization has met the international standard for inspection bodies and is qualified to carry out inspections.
Requirements for SCC’s Accreditation Program for Inspection Bodies are defined in ISO/IEC 17020:2012, Conformity assessment – Requirements for the operation of various types of bodies performing inspection.
Inspection bodies evaluate the safety of specific products and materials. They also make sure that the associated facilities, equipment and systems fit the work being done. Inspections may evaluate services as well as physical assets.
Inspection bodies from around the world seek SCC accreditation as proof that their work is in line with the most current national and international standards and regulations.
