Can an organization undertaking non-destructive testing be classified as an inspection body?

STANDARD: ISO/IEC 17020  ·  CLAUSE: 3.5  ·  TOPIC: Defining inspection body 


Bodies performing non-destructive testing activities may be accredited using either ISO/IEC 17025 or ISO/IEC 17020. EA (European co-operation for Accreditation) has published a document, EA-4/15 Accreditation for Non Destructive Testing, to ensure that, whichever route is chosen, accreditation is carried out using the same technical criteria.
