Related Body Information

As per ISO / IEC 17011:2004 a Related Body is a separate legal entity that is linked by common ownership or contractual arrangements to the accreditation body.  SCC must ensure that the activities of its Related Bodies do not compromise the confidentiality, objectivity and impartiality of its accreditations.  SCC has, with the participation of the interested parties, identified, analysed and documented the relationships with its Related Bodies to determine the potential for conflict of interest, whether they arise from within the accreditation body or from the activities of the related bodies.  Where  potential  conflicts were identified, appropriate action was taken  to assure confidentiality, objectivity and impartiality of SCC's accreditation programs.
