Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) and IEC (the International Electrotechnical

Commission) form the specialized system for worldwide standardization. National bodies that

are members of ISO or IEC participate in the development of International Standards through

technical committees established by the respective organization to deal with particular fields of

technical activity. ISO and IEC technical committees collaborate in fields of mutual interest. Other

international organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO and IEC, also

take part in the work.

The procedures used to develop this document and those intended for its further maintenance are

described in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 1. In particular, the different approval criteria needed for

the different types of document should be noted. This document was drafted in accordance with the

editorial rules of the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2 (see www .iso .org/ directives).

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject

of patent rights. ISO and IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent

rights. Details of any patent rights identified during the development of the document will be in the

Introduction and/or on the ISO list of patent declarations received (see www .iso .org/ patents) or the IEC

list of patent declarations received (see http:// patents .iec .ch).

Any trade name used in this document is information given for the convenience of users and does not

constitute an endorsement.

expressions related to conformity assessment, as well as information about ISO's adherence to the

World Trade Organization (WTO) principles in the Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) see www .iso .org/

iso/ foreword .html.

This document was prepared by the ISO Committee on Conformity Assessment (CASCO).

This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition (ISO/IEC 17000:2004), which has been

technically revised.
The main changes compared to the previous edition are as follows:

— addition of new terms: “object of conformity assessment” (see 4.2), “owner” (see 4.13), “impartiality”

(see 5.3), “independence” (see 5.4), “validation” (see 6.5), “verification” (see 6.6), “decision” (see 7.2),

“expiry” (see 8.4) and “restoration” (see 8.5);
— change of concept of conformity assessment system;

— deletion of the definition of the term “product” from the body of the document and addition to

Annex B;

— editorial revision of Annex A limited to changes in the terms and definitions in Clauses 4 to 9;

— extension of Annex B.

Any feedback or questions on this document should be directed to the user’s national standards body. A

ISO/IEC 17000:2020(E)
Introduction

The ISO Committee on conformity assessment (CASCO) develops International Standards relating to

conformity assessment activities such as testing, inspection and various forms of certification. For

many years, ISO/IEC Guide 2 included a core vocabulary for conformity assessment, built up from a

small number of terms and definitions first compiled to facilitate communication and understanding

about product certification based on standards for traditional manufactured goods.

In 2000, CASCO decided to remove conformity assessment terminology from ISO/IEC Guide 2 and

provide instead a self-contained vocabulary more readily applicable within the planned international

standards on conformity assessment and in the drafting or revision of related documents. The first

edition of this document was published in 2004, as a consistent framework within which more specific

concepts could be defined appropriately and denoted by the most appropriate terms.

Additional concepts unique to particular activities such as accreditation, certification of persons

and use of marks of conformity are not included in this document but are provided in International

Standards related to those activities.

Terms and definitions related to trade and regulation are given in Clause 9. These are intended not

only to standardize usage within the conformity assessment community, but also to help policy makers

concerned with the facilitation of trade within regulatory and international treaty frameworks.

The terms and definitions specified in this document, particularly in Clauses 6 and 7, reflect the

adoption by CASCO in November 2001 of the functional approach.

To provide a better understanding of the defined concepts, their grouping and their relationships, a

description of the functional approach is included in Annex A for information.

The terms included in this document relate to concepts considered essential to define. General terms

used to denote conformity assessment concepts for which common language usage is sufficient are

not included in this document. Terms not common across all International Standards for conformity

assessment and with definitions specific to a particular application are not included in this document

but are included in the specific relevant standard.
Relevant terms defined in other documents are listed in Annex B:

— terms applicable to specific aspects of conformity assessment, as defined in other conformity

assessment standards;

— terms generally applicable in conformity assessment contexts for which definitions are published

outside conformity assessment standards.

Conformity assessment — Vocabulary and general
principles
1 Scope

This document specifies general terms and definitions relating to conformity assessment (including the

accreditation of conformity assessment bodies) and to the use of conformity assessment to facilitate trade.

The general principles of conformity assessment and a description of the functional approach to

conformity assessment are provided in Annex A.

Conformity assessment interacts with other fields such as management systems, metrology,

standardization and statistics. The boundaries of conformity assessment are not defined in this

document.
2 Normative references
There are no normative references in this document.
3 Terms and definitions

ISO and IEC maintain terminological databases for use in standardization at the following addresses:

— IEC Electropedia: available at http:// www .electropedia .org/
4 Terms related to conformity assessment in general
4.1
conformity assessment
demonstration that specified requirements (5.1) are fulfilled

Note 1 to entry: The process of conformity assessment as described in the functional approach in Annex A can

have a negative outcome, i.e. demonstrating that the specified requirements are not fulfilled.

Note 2 to entry: Conformity assessment includes activities defined elsewhere in this document, such as but not

limited to testing (6.2), inspection (6.3), validation (6.5), verification (6.6), certification (7.6), and accreditation (7.7).

Note 3 to entry: Conformity assessment is explained in Annex A as a series of functions. Activities contributing to

any of these functions can be described as conformity assessment activities.

Note 4 to entry: This document does not include a definition of “conformity”. “Conformity” does not feature in the

definition of “conformity assessment”. Nor does this document address the concept of compliance.

4.2
object of conformity assessment

ISO/IEC 17000:2020(E)

Note 1 to entry: The term “body” is used in this document to refer to conformity assessment bodies (4.6) and

accreditation bodies (4.7). The term “organization” is used in its general meaning and may include bodies

according to the context. The more specific ISO/IEC Guide 2 definition of an organization as a body based on

membership is not applicable to the field of conformity assessment (4.1).
4.3
first-party conformity assessment activity

conformity assessment activity that is performed by the person or organization that provides or that is

the object of conformity assessment (4.2)

Note 1 to entry: The first-, second- and third-party descriptors used to characterize conformity assessment

activities in relation to a given object are not to be confused with the legal identification of the relevant parties

to a contract.

EXAMPLE Activities performed by providers, designers or owners of the object, investors in the object, and

advertisers or promoters of the object.

Note 2 to entry: If an activity is performed by an external body acting on behalf of and controlled by a person or

organization that provides or is the object, the activity is still called a first-party conformity assessment activity

(e.g. internal audits performed by a consultant who is not part of the organization).

4.4
second-party conformity assessment activity

conformity assessment activity that is performed by a person or organization that has a user interest in

the object of conformity assessment (4.2)

Note 1 to entry: The first-, second- and third-party descriptors used to characterize conformity assessment

activities in relation to a given object are not to be confused with the legal identification of the relevant parties

to a contract.

EXAMPLE Persons or organizations performing second-party conformity assessment activities include, for

example, purchasers or users of products, or potential customers seeking to rely on a supplier's management

system, or organizations representing those interests. Examples of organizations representing user interest

include consumer advocacy organizations, regulators implementing legislation governing products and services

for the protection of consumer and public interests, centralized government procurement organizations and

private sector purchasing agents.

Note 2 to entry: If an activity is performed by an external body acting on behalf of and controlled by a person or

organization with a user interest, the activity is still called a second-party conformity assessment activity (e.g.

supply chain audits conducted by an external body on behalf of the purchaser).
4.5
third-party conformity assessment activity

conformity assessment activity that is performed by a person or organization that is independent of the

provider of the object of conformity assessment (4.2) and has no user interest in the object

Note 1 to entry: The first-, second- and third-party descriptors used to characterize conformity assessment

activities in relation to a given object are not to be confused with the legal identification of the relevant parties

to a contract.
4.6
conformity assessment body

body that performs conformity assessment activities, excluding accreditation (7.7)

4.7
accreditation body
authoritative body that performs accreditation (7.7)

Note 1 to entry: The authority of an accreditation body can be derived from government, public authorities,

contracts, market acceptance or scheme owners.

Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) and IEC (the International Electrotechnical

Commission) form the specialized system for worldwide standardization. National bodies that

are members of ISO or IEC participate in the development of International Standards through

technical committees established by the respective organization to deal with particular fields of

technical activity. ISO and IEC technical committees collaborate in fields of mutual interest. Other

international organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO and IEC, also

take part in the work.

The procedures used to develop this document and those intended for its further maintenance are

described in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 1. In particular, the different approval criteria needed for

the different types of document should be noted. This document was drafted in accordance with the

editorial rules of the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2 (see www .iso .org/ directives).

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject

of patent rights. ISO and IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent

rights. Details of any patent rights identified during the development of the document will be in the

Introduction and/or on the ISO list of patent declarations received (see www .iso .org/ patents) or the IEC

list of patent declarations received (see http:// patents .iec .ch).

Any trade name used in this document is information given for the convenience of users and does not

constitute an endorsement.

This document was prepared by the ISO Committee on Conformity Assessment (CASCO).

This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition (ISO/IEC 17000:2004), which has been

technically revised.
The main changes compared to the previous edition are as follows:

— addition of new terms: “object of conformity assessment” (see 4.2), “owner” (see 4.13), “impartiality”

(see 5.3), “independence” (see 5.4), “validation” (see 6.5), “verification” (see 6.6), “decision” (see 7.2),

“expiry” (see 8.4) and “restoration” (see 8.5);
— change of concept of conformity assessment system;

— deletion of the definition of the term “product” from the body of the document and addition to

Annex B;

— editorial revision of Annex A limited to changes in the terms and definitions in Clauses 4 to 9;

ISO/IEC 17000:2020(E)
Introduction

The ISO Committee on conformity assessment (CASCO) develops International Standards relating to

conformity assessment activities such as testing, inspection and various forms of certification. For

many years, ISO/IEC Guide 2 included a core vocabulary for conformity assessment, built up from a

small number of terms and definitions first compiled to facilitate communication and understanding

about product certification based on standards for traditional manufactured goods.

In 2000, CASCO decided to remove conformity assessment terminology from ISO/IEC Guide 2 and

provide instead a self-contained vocabulary more readily applicable within the planned international

standards on conformity assessment and in the drafting or revision of related documents. The first

edition of this document was published in 2004, as a consistent framework within which more specific

concepts could be defined appropriately and denoted by the most appropriate terms.

Additional concepts unique to particular activities such as accreditation, certification of persons

and use of marks of conformity are not included in this document but are provided in International

Standards related to those activities.

Terms and definitions related to trade and regulation are given in Clause 9. These are intended not

only to standardize usage within the conformity assessment community, but also to help policy makers

concerned with the facilitation of trade within regulatory and international treaty frameworks.

The terms and definitions specified in this document, particularly in Clauses 6 and 7, reflect the

adoption by CASCO in November 2001 of the functional approach.

To provide a better understanding of the defined concepts, their grouping and their relationships, a

description of the functional approach is included in Annex A for information.

The terms included in this document relate to concepts considered essential to define. General terms

used to denote conformity assessment concepts for which common language usage is sufficient are

not included in this document. Terms not common across all International Standards for conformity

assessment and with definitions specific to a particular application are not included in this document

but are included in the specific relevant standard.
Relevant terms defined in other documents are listed in Annex B:

— terms applicable to specific aspects of conformity assessment, as defined in other conformity

assessment standards;

— terms generally applicable in conformity assessment contexts for which definitions are published

outside conformity assessment standards.

Conformity assessment — Vocabulary and general
principles
1 Scope

This document specifies general terms and definitions relating to conformity assessment (including the

accreditation of conformity assessment bodies) and to the use of conformity assessment to facilitate trade.

The general principles of conformity assessment and a description of the functional approach to

conformity assessment are provided in Annex A.

Conformity assessment interacts with other fields such as management systems, metrology,

standardization and statistics. The boundaries of conformity assessment are not defined in this

document.
2 Normative references
There are no normative references in this document.
3 Terms and definitions

ISO and IEC maintain terminological databases for use in standardization at the following addresses:

— IEC Electropedia: available at http:// www .electropedia .org/
4 Terms related to conformity assessment in general
4.1
conformity assessment
demonstration that specified requirements (5.1) are fulfilled

Note 1 to entry: The process of conformity assessment as described in the functional approach in Annex A can

have a negative outcome, i.e. demonstrating that the specified requirements are not fulfilled.

Note 2 to entry: Conformity assessment includes activities defined elsewhere in this document, such as but not

limited to testing (6.2), inspection (6.3), validation (6.5), verification (6.6), certification (7.6), and accreditation (7.7).

Note 3 to entry: Conformity assessment is explained in Annex A as a series of functions. Activities contributing to

any of these functions can be described as conformity assessment activities.

Note 4 to entry: This document does not include a definition of “conformity”. “Conformity” does not feature in the

definition of “conformity assessment”. Nor does this document address the concept of compliance.

4.2
object of conformity assessment

ISO/IEC 17000:2020(E)

Note 1 to entry: The term “body” is used in this document to refer to conformity assessment bodies (4.6) and

accreditation bodies (4.7). The term “organization” is used in its general meaning and may include bodies

according to the context. The more specific ISO/IEC Guide 2 definition of an organization as a body based on

membership is not applicable to the field of conformity assessment (4.1).
4.3
first-party conformity assessment activity

conformity assessment activity that is performed by the person or organization that provides or that is

the object of conformity assessment (4.2)

Note 1 to entry: The first-, second- and third-party descriptors used to characterize conformity assessment

activities in relation to a given object are not to be confused with the legal identification of the relevant parties

to a contract.

EXAMPLE Activities performed by providers, designers or owners of the object, investors in the object, and

advertisers or promoters of the object.

Note 2 to entry: If an activity is performed by an external body acting on behalf of and controlled by a person or

organization that provides or is the object, the activity is still called a first-party conformity assessment activity

(e.g. internal audits performed by a consultant who is not part of the organization).

second-party conformity assessment activity

conformity assessment activity that is performed by a person or organization that has a user interest in

the object of conformity assessment (4.2)

Note 1 to entry: The first-, second- and third-party descriptors used to characterize conformity assessment

activities in relation to a given object are not to be confused with the legal identification of the relevant parties

to a contract.

EXAMPLE Persons or organizations performing second-party conformity assessment activities include, for

example, purchasers or users of products, or potential customers seeking to rely on a supplier's management

system, or organizations representing those interests. Examples of organizations representing user interest

include consumer advocacy organizations, regulators implementing legislation governing products and services

for the protection of consumer and public interests, centralized government procurement organizations and

private sector purchasing agents.

Note 2 to entry: If an activity is performed by an external body acting on behalf of and controlled by a person or

organization with a user interest, the activity is still called a second-party conformity assessment activity (e.g.

supply chain audits conducted by an external body on behalf of the purchaser).
4.5
third-party conformity assessment activity

conformity assessment activity that is performed by a person or organization that is independent of the

provider of the object of conformity assessment (4.2) and has no user interest in the object

Note 1 to entry: The first-, second- and third-party descriptors used to characterize conformity assessment

activities in relation to a given object are not to be confused with the legal identification of the relevant parties

to a contract.
4.6
conformity assessment body

body that performs conformity assessment activities, excluding accreditation (7.7)

4.7
accreditation body
authoritative body that performs accreditation (7.7)

Note 1 to entry: The authority of an accreditation body can be derived from government, public authorities,

contracts, market acceptance or scheme owners.
