Accreditation If accreditation is not used, please describe the additional requirements and steps in the audit process (please use as guide the document SOGS N640 REV1 EN of 11 January 2011):
The evaluation process is started by the CAB which submits an application for notification, specifying the scope of its activities, including the products and the modules covered by the directive, for which it declares its competence. The CAB accompanies the application with a specified list of documents, in order to demonstrate to own the necessary resources and competence and to have a management system complying with ISO 17065, ISO 17020 and, accordingly to application, ISO 17021. A working group formed by personnel from MSE and MIT check the documents and verifies the fulfillment of the administrative and technical requirements. The significant part of the CAB evaluation comes from the audit on-site, where the responsible people are interviewed, the CA processes are reviewed and the activities records are examined. All the results obtained from the CAB are reported to the ‘Struttura Tecnica’ (a inter-ministry committee established in force of dm 175/2003, art. 7), who meet regularly, review each step of the evaluation process and decide on the approval / rejection of the applicant CAB. Depending on this decision, the CAB may be authorized for the partial or complete scope of the application and then notified.
