Measures during Corona

This week an umbrella policy has been drawn up by NEN outlining the way audits should be handled during this Corona crisis. This policy follows the guidelines (T051) of the Dutch Accrediting Body which in turn are based on international guidelines.

Although the T051 offers good guidance, it has not been prepared for audits aimed at observing behavior and culture. For this reason, an additional chapter has been devised for the Safety Culture Ladder, based on the NEN policy.

The central message is that certification bodies may postpone an audit if conducting this audit is not possible due to the imposed measures related to the Coronavirus. The certification bodies must proactively inform NEN of this postponement. The maximum deferral period for issuing the certificate is 6 months.

Conducting remote audits is permitted in a number of exceptional cases and only in areas where no behavioral observations need to be made. For all conditions and details, see the policy document with measures.

Stay healthy.
