This practical and highly interactive two-day course will help delegates understand the requirements and key principles of ISO/IEC 17029 and its application to accreditation of Validation and Verification Bodies.
ISO/IEC 17029 is the International Standard for conformity assessment of bodies providing validation and verification services.
Validation/Verification Bodies that are accredited to this standard have demonstrated competent, impartial and consistent quality approaches, proving that the activities carried out by these organisations can be trusted.

- A detailed knowledge of the standard, as delivered by practising UKAS lead assessors
- The ability to successfully apply the standard to meet the requirements for impartiality, competence and operational control
