ISO 17020 Training Courses

For Inspection Bodies

Bywater’s ISO 17020 training courses provide delegates with a thorough understanding of the requirements of ISO/IEC 17020:2012 and how to perform internal audits of organisations performing inspection activities.

Where an organisation is looking to assess product or service conformity, it may choose to use inspection as a detailed form of examination.  Inspection bodies may be in-company (1st party), customers of suppliers (2nd party) or they may be independent organisations contracted to provide inspection services (3rd party), for example: engineering inspection services, safety or environmental risk assessments, food inspection, building surveys and a great deal more.  In any case, their inspection activities should be independent and impartial  so that their inspection reports can be relied upon.

ISO/IEC 17020:2012 was developed to address the need for inspection bodies to demonstrate their capability and competence as well as impartiality and consistency.
