Auditors and Certification Bodies
Auditors and Certifications Bodies are important partners to the IRIS Management Centre ensuring the transparent and objective functioning of the scheme. All approved certification bodies have an accreditation in accordance with ISO/IEC 17021:2015 and are sanctioned by the IRIS Management Centre. Only IRIS-approved auditors who have participated in the IRIS training and have passed a written and oral examination can perform IRIS Certification audits. The auditors can only audit against their competence in a certain product category. Auditors who comply with these requirements can work for their IRIS-approved sponsor certification body.
