What is minimally required to be included in the assessment plan?

STANDARD: ISO/IEC 17011  ·  CLAUSE: 7.4.7  ·  TOPIC: Assessment plan


The goal of the assessment plan (also known as “agenda”) is to enable the assessment team to perform an efficient assessment, and for this the information included must be sufficient for the CAB to be prepared to perform the conformity assessment activities. Normally, this includes CAB’s scope (generic or specific), locations (physical and virtual) and personnel (names and/or functions) as well as a timetable or time schedule of activities to be performed and the persons involved – ISO 19011 can also be used to have additional guidelines.
