This serves to announce the publication of Issue 2 of IAF MD 11:2019 IAF mandatory document for the application of ISO/IEC 17021-1 for audits of integrated managements systems. This revised version of the document was published on 17 January 2017.

The document provides requirements for the application of ISO/IEC 17021-1 for the planning and delivery of audits of IMS and, if appropriate, the certification of an organization’s management system(s) against two or more sets of audit criteria/standards. All clauses of ISO/IEC 17021-1 continue to apply and this document does not add to or supersede any of the requirements in that standard.  The document is applicable to ISO standard-based sector-specific management systems standards if the Scheme Owner allows it. Non-ISO based schemes may also find this document useful for integrated management system auditing.

The document was prepared by IAF Technical Committee and approved by IAF members. The published document is available from the IAF website https://www.iaf.nu/upFiles/IAF%20MD11%20Issue%202%2017012019.pdf
