- Who's Accredited
ANAB provides ISO/IEC 17020 accreditation of inspection bodies for notified body activity under the Electromagnetic Compatibility Directive (EMCD) and Radio Equipment Directive (RED).
ANAB's accreditation program specifies requirements for EMC and telecom/radio equipment inspection organizations seeking notified body designation described as “Option II” in the NIST Requirements & Application for U.S. Conformity Assessment Bodies Seeking EU Radio Equipment Directive (RED) 2014/53/EU Notified Body Status and/or the NIST Requirements & Application for U.S. Conformity Assessment Bodies Seeking Electromagnetic Compatibility Directive (EMCD) 2014/30/EU Notified Body Status.
These requirements are in addition to those in ISO/IEC 17020, which specifies requirements for the competence of bodies performing inspection and for the impartiality and consistency of their inspection activities.
Under the U.S.-EU/EFTA Telecom Agreements, qualified U.S. conformity assessment bodies (CABs) can apply to the European Commission (EC) through NIST’s MRA Program Office to become a notified body under specific European Union (EU) Directives.
A notified body is an organization designated by an EU country to assess the conformity of certain products before being placed on the market. These bodies carry out tasks related to conformity assessment procedures set out in the applicable legislation, when a third party is required. The European Commission publishes a list of such notified bodies.
