Call for interest in accreditation based on IEC 62443: ‘Safety for industrial measurement and control engineering – Network and system safety’
Since the publication of the standards IEC 62443-4-1 and IEC 62443-4-2, the RvA received some requests for accreditation of activities under this series of standards. As the RvA did not grant accreditation for these standards before, we first have to perform a development process. We will do this together with interested clients in order to establish a robust and proportionate assessment approach. The RvA wants to assess the potential interest in accreditation in this area, in order to make a proper assessment in the deployment of our resources. If there is sufficient interest, we will start a development process. The focus will initially be on test accreditation (under EN ISO/IEC 17025). If there is also considerable interest in other areas, we may also start a development process for those activities.
