Meeting the relevant requirements

Familiarise yourself with the clauses in the relevant accreditation standard(s). Look at what you already have in relation to what the standard requires you to have in place. Carry out a gap analysis to identify areas that need addressing.

Identify the relevant supporting NACS publications which will be required to gain accreditation. As well as NACS publications, applicant organisations should be aware of international publications relevant to their area of accreditation, available from the EA, IAF and ILAC websites.
