ISO/IEC 17020


ISO 17020 standard specifies general criteria for the competence of impartial bodies performing inspection irrespective of the sector involved. It also specifies independence criteria. Inspection parameters include matters of quantity, quality, safety, fitness for use, and continued safety compliance of plant or systems in operation. This standard, therefore, covers the functions of bodies whose work may include the examination of materials, products, installations, plant, processes, work procedures, or services, and the determination of their conformity with requirements, and the subsequent reporting of results of these activities to clients and, when required, to supervisory authorities.


This standard is intended for the use of inspection bodies and their accreditation bodies as well as other bodies concerned with recognising the competence of inspection bodies.

In the case where the certification body carries out tests/or calibrations including sampling then the body should operate a quality system that also meets the requirements of ISO 17025.
