IOAS accreditation for EcoControl suspended

On 13th January 2023 the IOAS took the decision to suspend EcoControl GMBH of Germany, ISO/IEC 17065 and NATRUE accreditation. Ecocontrol has been invited to take corrective actions to enable IOAS to lift the suspension.

Whilst the suspension is in effect Ecocontrol is not permitted to accept new applications or extend the scope of certificates but is required to maintain surveillance on existing certificate holders.

Any operations, certification bodies and authorities that relied on these accreditations are asked to take note.
