Change of RvA policy rules BR002 & BR011


The Dutch Accreditation Council (RvA) has recently changed the policy rules BR002 and BR011.

Policy Rule BR002 describes the RvA policy regarding accreditation.

Compared to version 8 of this document (dated 7 august 2019), the following significant changes have been implemented:

  • Article 2 has been deleted because the RvA no longer performs assessments for the Ministry of Social Affairs and Employment and CCKL assessments (the rest of the articles have been renumbered as a result);
  • In Article 17 it has been added that the report of the observations made is also assessed;
  • Article 23 clarifies the procedure for supplementary assessment following a temporary accreditation with restricting conditions;
  • In Article 26 it has been added that an accreditation declaration can be issued for a limited period;
  • Chapter 9 Sanctions has been renamed to Actions.

Policy Rule BR011 describes the RvA policy regarding transfer and relocation of accreditation.

Compared to version 1 of this document (dated 5 september 2014) some incorrect references have been corrected.
