The development and maintenance of the competence of an accreditation body in the scope of voluntary certification of products and management systems

Project manager: Barbara Miareczko M.Sc.

Project summary:

The management system of the Centre for Certification of Products and Management Systems of CIOP-PIB underwent an annual assessment during an overview of the management and an internal audit. The resulting assessment showed the management system conformed with the requirements of the PN-EN 450001:2000 and PN-EN ISO/IEC 17021:2007 standards regarding meeting the criteria for accreditation. The activity within certification of products and management systems was also assessed annually by the management council at CIOP-PIB, which confirmed that the Instituteʼs activities conformed to the principles in the "Declaration of policy on quality". To ensure reliable and unbiased assessment in certification processes, four programmes were developed: on certification of quality management systems (PR-QMS), environment management systems (PR-EMS), occupational and safety management systems (PR-BHP) and food safety management systems (PR-FSMS). While the task was carried out, a new "Declaration of policy on the quality of the centre for certification of products and management of CIOP-PIB" was also established. Criteria of certification of the following products were also updated: high voltage insulation and protection equipment, equipment protecting the skin, protective clothing and office seats. As the scope of the certification services has been extended, a new PC-17 procedure "Assessment of compliance of occupational safety and health management systems in accordance with the requirements of OHSAS 18001" was also developed. A "Customer satisfaction questionnaire" was also developed. A questionnaire study was administered to assess the Centreʼs certification services.
