The committee is appointed by the Board of DANAK with the aim of providing DANAK advice in matters of significance for accreditation to certification.

Among the topics on its agenda have been:

  • Conversion at certification bodies to new editions of the accreditation standards - for example the transition to DS/EN ISO 17021:IEC/2011 in January 2013. The conversion process can often be very time constrained and difficult, because the interpretation of the new requirements is difficult to communicate and implement.
  • Monitoring of accreditation in the form of the number of field visits (DANAKs visits to enterprises, that are certified by certification bodies).
  • New regulatory requirements relevant to the accreditation, including for example accreditation as the basis for notification as notified body under the construction products regulation, Byggevareforordningen.
  • New systems under the various accreditation standards, including ETV, CO2-verification, EMAS 3, GlobalG.A.P. as well as schemes for renewable energy plants, scrap, the interoperability directive, sustainable forest management, etc.
