End of ISO TS 22003:2007 validity
Starting point & Rationale
The ISO TS 22003:2013 was published in mid-December 2013, with an official transition period of 3 years, ending mid-December 2016.
This means that, in accordance with the ISO rules:
- from the 15th December 2016, no certificate can be issued under ISO TS 22003:2007 accreditation,
- from that date, all new certificates shall be issued under ISO TS 22003:2013 accreditation.
- all certificates issued before Mid-December 2016 against ISO TS 22003:2007 can be maintained until the end of validity period (3 years after issuing).
Note: no action is needed on the already existing audits and certificates on the Database.
