Conformity Assessment Schemes (CAS) Setting the Scene (or scheme)

This is the first in a series of three modules intended to enable an understanding of conformity assessment schemes (CAS) and the importance of these schemes within accredited conformity assessment activity.

Note – Modules 2 and 3 are pending release. Where reference is made to these modules, it is to highlight that there will be follow-up and expansion of those points in subsequent modules. 

The ‘scope’ of the modules is limited currently to inspection and certification schemes relating to the certification of persons, products, processes and services.

  • This module covers the following aspects
    • What is a CAS?
    • Where does a CAS fit in with accredited conformity assessment activity?
    • Is the CAS valid?  Does it matter?
    • CAS ownership – who owns the scheme, and does it matter?
  • Learning objectives

    By the end of this course, learners will be able to:

    • Understand and apply the fundamentals for conformity assessment schemes.
