Guidelines for corrective action to be taken by a certification body in the event of misuse of its mark of conformity
This standard was last reviewed and confirmed in 2014. Therefore this version remains current.
The purpose of this Guide is to identify a series of procedures which a national certification body (non-governmental) should consider in deciding how to respond to a reported misuse of its registered mark of conformity (i.e. violation of a contract, inadequate quality control, or error in assessment of conformity) or a situation in which a certified product is subsequently found to be hazardous (i.e. due to inadequate standard, unanticipated end-use of a product or a manufacturing defect).
