Derogation on Undertaking Main Chain of Custody Audits Remotely

This derogation provides measures to temporarily perform main chain of custody audits remotely until 31 December 2020.

Due to the pandemic of novel coronavirus (COVID-19), vast areas of the world are subject to travel restrictions and many certification bodies have not been able to undertake physical onsite audits for main evaluations. Therefore, this derogation provides guidance on when certification bodies may perform main chain of custody evaluations remotely.

These measures will only be in place until 31 December 2020 at the latest. You can download the derogation by clicking here.
