ISO/CASCO Committee on Conformity Assessment

Conformity assessment is the process used to show that a product, service or system meets specified requirements. These requirements are likely to be contained in an ISO standard.

ISO Committee on Conformity Assessment (ISO/CASCO) prepares international guides and standards relating to the practice of testing, inspection and certification of products, processes and services, and to the assessment of management systems, testing laboratories, inspection bodies, certification bodies, accreditation bodies and their operation and acceptance. It promotes mutual recognition and acceptance of national and regional conformity assessment systems, and the appropriate use of international standards for testing, inspection, certification, assessment and related purposes.
