Q - What are the scopes of the Global Alliance of Accreditation Societies (ABC Network) MLA?

A - The scope of the Global Alliance of Accreditation Societies (ABC Network) MLA includes two components; main scope and sub-scope. There are currently two main scopes:
Management Systems Certification (ISO/IEC 17021) and Accreditation of Product Certification (ISO/IEC Guide 65).

There are two sub-scopes for Management Systems:
ISO 9001 and ISO 14001.

A main scope means certificates are ‘equally reliable’ because the certification bodies conform to the same standard.

A sub-scope means the certificates are ‘equivalent’ because the management systems, products, services or persons conform to the same standard.
