Assessment documents

The RvA has two different types of assessment documents: specific accreditation protocols, explanatory/informative documents. Below is a list of all relevant documents.

Specific accreditation protocols

These documents contain brief descriptions for specific areas of accreditation. They serve as a practical supplement to policy rule BR002. Where necessary, an SAP provides an explanation of the accreditation requirements. SAPs are mandatory documents.

Explanatory documents (T-documents) and informative documents

An RvA-Explanation describes the policy and/or procedure of the RvA concerning a specific issue of accreditation. If the policy and/or procedure concerning any accreditation issue described in an RvA Explanation is set out in an EA, ILAC or IAF document, then the RvA will bring its policy and procedure in line with this EA, ILAC or IAF document. T-documents are mandatory.
