Dear colleagues! The existing situation of Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak poses new challenges and tasks before us.
First of all we’d like to inform you that all main offices of Russian Register will continue to operate – Russian Register team is available by phone or e-mail.
We have thoroughly assessed risks, considered the advice of the World Health Organization, decrees published on the Federal and regional levels, and information bulletins and communique issued by the International Accreditation Forum (IAF) and certification scheme owners.
In case there is no possibility to perform an audit onsite to obtain or maintain your International Certification the procedures provide for the use of alternative options of conformity assessment, including the use of the information-communication technology.
Currently different certification schemes have their own limitations on the change of the normal audit format, therefore for each audit Russian Register will analyze and agree with its clients on options and terms of audit conduction on the individual basis.
In case of questions please contact our offices to discuss and choose an optimal option for certification activities.
On 24.12.2019 the Dutch Accreditation Council (RvA) has made a positive decision on extension of Russian Register accreditation scope for FSSC 22000 version 5.
