The IAQG Other Party Management (OPMT) has updated the Supplement Rules Document (SR001 - Dates 25 Jan 2012) that provides transition requirements for all stakeholders (e.g., Accreditation Bodies, Certification Bodies, Certified Organizations). The document was updated to incorporate the IAQG Executive Committee’s decision to adjust the consequences for not meeting the 01 Jul 2012 transition target date.

The IAQG Executive Committee’s decision resulted in the following changes:

Certification Bodies must contact their respective clients to implement all required changes to certification status. In addition to the updated rule, this Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) link can also be used by stakeholders to further clarify the rules for transition.

The Other Party Management Team (OPMT) will continue to work with all stakeholders by communicating lessons learned and status progress as we strive to meet all transition requirements.
