Home Conformity Assessment

Why is this needed?

  1. ISO requirements state that product conformity and conformity assessment cannot be in the same document, a principle also supported by Standards Australia. Therefore there is a need for two separate documents to cover these two aspects, hence we have AS/NZS 5131 and the Conformity Assessment Framework.
  2. Standards Australia generally do not wish to become involved in the drafting of conformity assessment, preferring that industry takes on that task.
