The standard that is used  to assess the competence of Inspections Bodies, ISO/IEC 17020 has been revised.    The new version ISO/IEC 17020: 2012  Conformity assessment — Requirements for the operation of various types of bodies performing inspection was  published by ISO on 1 March 2012.  UKAS will announce the transition  arrangements on the UKAS website in due course and will also communicate these  directly to inspection bodies.  It is anticipated that UKAS will follow the  transition timescales set by ILAC and, whilst these have yet to be confirmed, it is expected that a period of up to 3 years could be allowed.
