INAB COVID-19 Information
INAB continues to engage with all of our accredited conformity assessment bodies (CABs), respond to queries and provide as much advice as possible during this time. We consult regularly with our European and international colleagues (EA, ILAC and IAF) and follow their positions with regard to accredited conformity assessments. Our own risk assessment processes are under constant review and update.
It is important during this period that end-users and the wider community can continue to rely on the services of accredited CABs and therefore, that INAB and the bodies it accredits continue to work together to ensure that the principles of accreditation are maintained during this extraordinary event.
For information on accreditation of COVID-19 testing please see Accreditation for SARS-CoV-2 (Covid-19) testing
INAB is undertaking remote assessments where it is suitable and appropriate to do so, and where it can be facilitated by the organisation.
