IOAS Quality Director serves as IAF Liaison to ISO/CASCO WG 65 for the revision of ISO/IEC 17067.

IOAS Quality Director, Teresa Barnett, serves as the IAF Liaison to the ISO/CASCO Working Group (WG) 65 on the revision of ISO/IEC 17067 and participated in the third meeting of this WG the week of June 3, 2024.  Substantial changes to the document are well underway, including expanding upon its scope to be applicable to various types of conformity assessment and not just product certification.  Not only does this necessitate significant updates to the body of the document, but it also resulted in the need to develop more than a dozen annexes to include details specific to each type of conformity assessment activity.  A third Working Draft of the guideline should be available to WG members for comment in July 2024.

The WG meets next in late October 2024.
