Conformity assessment is a demonstration, that specific requirements related to a product, service, process, system, person or body, are completely fulfilled. The processes that need to be followed, to be able to demonstrate that they meet the requirements, are also contained in ISO/IEC standards and guides.
The term “conformity assessment” includes the accreditation of conformity assessment bodies as well.

- Two existing laboratories /inspection bodies and/or conformity assessment bodies received support to become Notified Bodies under EU New Approach Directives.
