ISO/IEC 17024 is a standard that defines the general requirements for bodies operating certification programs of persons (Personnel Certification Body). ISO/IEC 17024 defines how a certification body should develop, implement, and maintain a certification program and provides a global benchmark for certification schemes to ensure that they operate in a consistent, comparable, and reliable manner worldwide, thus establishing an environment for the mutual recognition of schemes and facilitating the global mobility of personnel. It was updated and republished in July of 2012. ISO CASCO Working Group 30 (the working group rewriting 17024) had the following as the goals for revision: repair/rewrite areas of the standard that need clarification or have been confusing; eliminate the International Accreditation Forum (IAF) Guidance Document (GD24) by incorporating all appropriate guidance into the standard; further expound on some areas; and make the standard “look” like the other ISO standards. This webinar will talk about the standard, including the purpose and use of the standard, major changes in the 2012 version, and applicability for regulators.  The presenter, Dr. Cynthia Woodley, is the chair of the ISO committee that updated the standard.
