The Dutch Accreditation Council (RvA) has recently changed Regulation VR003 regarding the use of Accreditation marks and logo's.
Regulation VR003 describes the policy and rules regarding the use of Accreditation marks and logo's.
In comparison with version 4 dated July 17, 2018 the following significant changes have been made:
For the mandatory use of the accreditation mark, or an equivalent reference to the accredited status, an implementation period has been set . The implementation period for the different CAB's is further specified in article 17 of the VR003 document.
If, in the first year after the dates referred to in paragraph 1 of article 17, it is determined during an assessment that these requirements are not met, a non-conformity category (B) will be formulated which must demonstrably be closed within 1 year after the relevant date referred to in paragraph 1 of article 17.
