The Dutch Accreditation Council (RvA) has recently changed policy rule BR004. This policy rule describes the RvA policy and the rules regarding Non-conformities and Corrective actions.
The following significant changes have been made in this version compared with version 2 dated 23 January 2015:
- Article 5 contains a more extensive explanation of the way in which non-conformities are reported after a witness assessment.
- In Article 14 it is clarified that in case of a category A non-conformity activities must be stopped as long as the results have to be regarded as possibly incorrect or unreliable as a result of the quality problems established.
