Why Is My Certification Audit So Long?
It's rare to ever hear an organization complain that their certification audit wasn't long enough.
The duration of QMS and EMS certification audits is defined in IAF MD 5:2013, IAF Mandatory Document for Duration of QMS and EMS audits.
This document, published by the International Accreditation Forum (IAF), provides the framework to be used by IAF accredited certifying bodies to establish audit duration within their own documented procedures to ISO 17021.
For more information, this standard is available on the IAF's website:
