SCC Policy for Scope Extensions and List of Standards in the Product, Process, and Service Certification Accreditation Program (CBAP) – AMENDED
SCC has established a new policy for scope extensions for the addition of standards that the certification body (CB) wishes to use in its certifications issued under SCC accreditation. This policy was first announced in SCC’s Accreditation Bulletin Number 2018-16. SCC has now revised the policy document to provide more comprehensive guidance for CBs. The fully revised policy outlined in this bulletin is effective immediately and replaces the policy outlined in Bulletin Number 2018-16.
All accredited Product, Process and Service Certification Bodies who are currently certifying organizations to CanadaGAP are required to transition their customers to CanadaGAP Version 7.2 of the Program Management Manual by April 1st 2020.
Accreditation Implications re: CSA A277 - Procedure for Certification of Prefabricated Buildings, Modules, and Panels
CORRECTION - 2018-03-16
There have been some developments with respect to this initiative. The proposed approach has been put on HOLD. There will no immediate changes to your scope. But rather each certification body (CB) will be contacted and consulted individually to determine next steps so as to avoid any disruption in the industry. Limited scope modifications will only proceed if it is clear from the evidence provided by the CB that they do not have the professional technical involvement as required by CSA A277-16.
