RAB Qualifies for IATCA Agreement on Environmental Management Systems

Published: Monday, October 11, 2004 - 22:00

A successful peer evaluation by the International Auditor and Training Certification Association recently qualified the Registrar Accreditation Board for a new agreement to enhance worldwide recognition of auditor training courses to ISO 14001.

RAB is one of the first organizations to earn an initial four-year qualification for the EMS multilateral agreement. It’s a culmination of a series of evaluations that examined the procedures and operating practices of each participating certification body. RAB’s audit was performed by auditors from Australia and South Africa.

In addition to qualifying RAB for the new IATCA agreement, the auditors recommended a four-year extension of RAB’s qualification for IATCA’s quality management system.
