Project Summary

Accreditation is an established standards and conformance activity that enables conformity assessment results generated in one economy to be recognized and accepted in other economies.  Conformity assessment results include test reports, inspection reports, management system certificates, and product certificates.  Acceptance of accredited conformity assessment results is often required for compliance with import/export controls, for market access, and for participation in regional supply chains in the voluntary sector.

This project helps transition APEC Member Economy accreditation bodies (ABs) to the new edition of ISO/IEC 17011:2017, Conformity assessment -- Requirements for accreditation bodies accrediting conformity assessment bodies (which replaces the 2004 edition).

The planned activities in this project include policy briefing and awareness raising for APEC delegates, and events to facilitate the comprehensive and consistent implementation of the new edition of ISO/IEC 17011 across APEC Member Economies.

Relevance

ISO/IEC 17011 sets out the internationally agreed requirements for how accreditation bodies around the world operate. It is the basis for the acceptance of conformity assessment results that enable both intra-, and inter-regional trade, and contributes to safe and efficient domestic economies.  Accreditation is an established, horizontal (multi-sector), framework element of standards and conformance infrastructure at international, regional and national levels.  Transitioning to the new edition of ISO/IEC 17011 is a critical undertaking that allows APEC member economies to maintain their commitments to APEC, World Trade Organisation (WTO) agreements, and to each other in terms of Free Trade Agreements and G2G Mutual Recognition Arrangements (MRAs).  Completion of this project will provide a sustained benefit across all APEC member economies. 

The new edition of ISO/IEC 17011 is a once-in-a-decade event for the global accreditation community.  Each regional grouping of ABs is now preparing to assist their members transition to the new standard.  They are seeking support from their relevant regional institutions, including APEC in the case of the Asia Pacific region.  In APEC the regional groupings of ABs are two of the APEC SCSC Specialist Regional Bodies (SRBs) – a sub-group under SCSC. They are the Asia Pacific Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (APLAC) and Pacific Accreditation Cooperation (PAC). 

The project falls directly under ‘Standards, conformity assessment, technical regulations, regulatory cooperation, and regulatory coherence’ which is one of the Rank 1 priority areas identified in the APEC Funding Criteria for 2017.  In addition, this project also contributes to other Rank 1 priorities such as: Support the multilateral trading system and the implementation of Bogor Goals; Trade and Investment facilitation and liberalization, including infrastructure development; Regional Economic Integration initiatives, including the Beijing Roadmap for APEC's Contribution to the Realization of the FTAAP and Lima Declaration on FTAAP, RTAs/FTAs information sharing mechanism; Food security and the implementation of the Food Security Roadmap Towards 2020, the Food Security Business Plan, and the Piura Declaration on APEC Food Security; and Supply Chain Connectivity.

Objectives

1)  To improve awareness of APEC delegates and other public policy officials about the role that accreditation plays in economic efficiency, trade and good regulatory practice.;

2)  To provide knowledge about the new edition of ISO/IEC 17011 APEC delegates and accreditation bodies in APEC Member Economies; and

3)  To enable APLAC and PAC to update, moderate and train regional peer evaluators so they can consistently and fairly evaluate the application of the new edition of ISO/IEC 17011 by accreditation bodies within the region.

TILF/ASF Justification

In 2017, APEC’s two Specialist Regional Bodies for accreditation, the Asia-Pacific Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (APLAC) and the Pacific Accreditation Cooperation (PAC), undertook a comprehensive survey of developing economies’ capacity building needs.  The transition to the new edition of ISO/IEC 17011 topped the list and this is now the major focus of capacity building activities for 2018.

APEC developing member economies will be directly engaged in the implementation of this project as they will be involved as participants, speakers, and lecturers, and in some cases, be the host economy for the planned events. The project will provide an opportunity for knowledge sharing amongst economies at all levels, and give the opportunity for domestic challenges and best practices approaches to be discussed and, where relevant, adopted in other APEC Member Economies.  It is noted that the following developing APEC Member Economies are co-sponsors of this project: China; Indonesia; Malaysia and Viet Nam.

Planned events under this project

Specific output

Benefits

1

1-day briefing and awareness raising for accreditation executives

Workshop presentation slides and best practice examples

Awareness raising for accreditation executives on the main changes to the requirements in the new edition of ISO/IEC 17011, and an opportunity amongst those executives to discuss implementation issues from a strategic and collaborative level, especially with a focus on the use of accredited conformity assessment to facilitate APEC outcomes.  The role of accreditation executives is to manage accreditation bodies and to undertake the strategic and high-level engagement with other accreditation bodies in the region.  This is to ensure mutual trust and acceptance in each other’s accredited conformity assessment results.

2

2-day training workshop for accreditation technical/quality managers

Workshop presentation slides and best practice examples

Training on the implementation of the new edition of ISO/IEC 17011, including an opportunity to share best practices and develop consistent approach to achieving the requirements.  The role of accreditation techncial/quality managers is to ensure that, at a techncial level, their accreditation body fulfils the requirements of the new edition of ISO/IEC 17011 and associated implementation guidance from APLAC and PAC.  This enables a common techncial understanding of accreditation to be established and maintained across the region.

The workshop presentations and best practice examples will be provided to the participants via email for distribution within their own economies. The materials will also be available on an ongoing basis on the APLAC and PAC websites as online tools and downloads, and links to these pages may be made from relevant APEC website pages.

3

2-day training workshop for peer evaluators in APEC economies related to accredited testing and inspection

Workshop presentation slides and best practice examples

Training of peer evaluators on the consistent assessment of accreditation bodies in APEC Member Economies against the requirements in the new edition of ISO/IEC 17011.  This will provide the opportunity to ‘calibrate’ understandings of requirements and what should be considered during assessment in a consistent and effective manner.  The role of peer evaluators is to support the implementation of the APLAC mutual recognition arrangement (MRA) by independently evaluating APLAC Members’ fulfilment of ISO/IEC 17011 requirements and associated APLAC implementation guidance.

Online feedback surveys will be undertaken after each event which will cover questions such as event registration, event information, venue suitability, suitability of content, performance of facilitators, items for improvement and suggestions for follow-up activities.

2- day training workshop for peer evaluators in APEC economies related to accredited certification

Workshop presentation slides and best practice examples

Training of peer evaluators on the consistent assessment of accreditation bodies in APEC Member Economies against the requirements in the new edition of ISO/IEC 17011.  This will provide the opportunity to ‘calibrate’ understandings of requirements and what should be considered during assessment in a consistent and effective manner. The role of peer evaluators is to support the implementation of the PAC multilateral recognition arrangement (MLA) by independently evaluating PAC Members’ fulfilment of ISO/IEC 17011 requirements and associated PAC implementation guidance.

5

1-day policy briefing and awareness raising on accreditation for APEC delegates

Workshop briefing notes; presentation slides

Update for APEC delegates on the current state-of-play and contemporary use of accredited conformity assessment to support APEC and domestic policy outcomes.  Awareness raising on the new edition of ISO/IEC 17011 for end users.


Outcomes:
The expected medium to long terms outcomes of this project include:

1)   Greater awareness and use of accredited conformity assessment in achieving APEC priorities and outcomes;

2)  Greater use of accredited conformity assessment as a regional and domestic public policy tool;

3)   Participants have increased knowledge from both a policy perspective and a techncial perspective about the use of accredited conformity assessment;

4)  Accreditation bodies of APEC Member Economies gain a common understanding of the expectations that they have of each other in implementing the requirements of the new edition of ISO/IEC 17011;

5)   Accreditation bodies of APEC Member Economies share knowledge and adopt best practices from their peers where there is compatibility within domestic situations;

6)   There are greater levels of consistency in the peer evaluation of accreditation bodies in APEC Member Economies which increases the trust of government officials, regulators and industry in the reliance they can place on accredited conformity assessment results to support trade and other public policy objectives; and

7)  Use of the specific outputs mentioned above by participants to engage policy makers and train their colleagues in their own economies.

Beneficiaries:  The beneficiaries of the project include APEC delegates who will receive a 1-day policy briefing on the changes happening in accreditation and how they relate to national standards and conformance infrastructures and trade.  This may also give an opportunity for delegates to share their policy perspectives on the current use of accreditation. The APEC delegates being targeted are those with oversight of their economy’s quality infrastructure policy, and correlate with the membership of the APEC SCSC. Accreditation body executives, staff and peer evaluators from across the APEC region will also benefit from this project as the workshops give them the opportunity to discuss the new standard and identify issues which need to be addressed consistently to support APECs goals and objectives.

In terms of beneficiaries, the above table only identifies direct beneficiaries. Transition to the new edition ISO/IEC 17011 also benefits several thousand conformity assessment bodies (laboratories, inspection bodies, certification bodies) in the APEC region, and their clients that benefit from the millions of accredited and accepted conformity assessment results that facilitate APEC trade each year. 

Key project information will be distributed through direct emails and communications with APEC SCSC member contact points and accreditation bodies in each APEC member economy.  Selection criteria will depend on each event and will mostly be based on APEC delegates and appropriate accreditation body personnel. 

Other public or private sector roles that could benefit as much and create as much impact as a result of workshop participation: Transitioning to the new edition of ISO/IEC 17011 allows all APEC member economies to maintain their commitments to APEC, the World Trade Organisation (WTO) agreements, and to each other resulting from Free Trade Agreements and G2G Mutual Recognition Arrangements (MRAs). Consequently, completion of this project will facilitate both intra-and inter-regional trade and enhance product and consumers safety as well as improve efficiency across supply chains of the participating economies. This in turn will provide a sustained benefit across all of industry and the public, both collectively and individually.

Dissemination

Dissemination of the outputs (i.e. the various workshop presentations and best practice examples) will primarily be through the participants of the various events being provided with electronic copies of the materials via email and distributing these within their own economies.

The materials will also be available on an ongoing basis on the APLAC and PAC websites as online tools and downloads, and links to these pages may be made from relevant APEC website pages.

Project Reports will be made available on the APEC publication website as appropriate in keeping with the APEC Project Guidelines (refer item 15).

Gender

In the area of accreditation women are well represented at all levels, including many women Chief Executives of accreditation bodies within APEC member economies, and in the leadership positions (Chair and Vice-Chair, and Committee Chairs) of the two APEC Specialist Regional Bodies related to accreditation, APLAC and PAC.

Participation in the events of this APEC project are not limited to any specific gender, and consideration will be given to gender balance when the event programmers are being drawn up.  Given the horizontal use of accreditation conformity assessment across many sectors of the economy the benefits of the project will be available to all members of the population including all women.

The project objectives and benefits have targeted both women and men.

At the onset of the preparation of the project, women have been involved. The project has been developed by women in the project proponent’s organization.

The project proponent will continue to consider involvement of women in the stages of the development of the project.

Event information, agendas, materials, and registrations will be managed through event specific websites.  For each event the type of participant will be identified in accordance with the table of outputs in item 5, above.  As part of the registration process, the participant will be expected to submit evidence of approval to attend from their APLAC or PAC member (for events 1-4) and from their APEC SCSC delegation (for event 5).  Once submitted the PO or delegate will check the registration before final approval. Online feedback surveys will be undertaken after each event which will cover questions such as event registration, event information, venue suitability, suitability of content, performance of facilitators, items for improvement and suggestions for follow-up activities.

A maximum of 35 persons have been budgeted for each event.  For events 2, 3 and 4 the budget allows for travel and per diems for participants from the 11 APEC Member Economies that are eligible for funding (Chile; China; Indonesia; Malaysia; Mexico; Papua New Guinea; The Philippines; Peru; Russia; Thailand and Viet Nam).

Risks

The following risks and risk treatments have been identified for this project:

1)  Lack of planning for the events resulting in disorganized, last-minute and poor quality workshops:  The events are being planned and being managed by personnel that have experience in creating events in international locations, and have checklists and timetables to ensure all aspects are covered in the plan within a suitable timeframe.

2)  Lack of clarity and focus about events topics and agendas:  The agendas for the events are based on the results of a previous capacity building survey carried out amongst the members of APLAC and PAC in 2017, and the training agendas have already been used in several similar events hosted by other bodies.  The subject matter of accreditation and the new edition of ISO/IEC 17011 is well understood by the personnel organizing the events.

3)  Poor quality speakers and trainers:  Speakers and trainers will be experienced presenters and have expert-level awareness in the subject matter covered in the events.

4)   Lack of materials and subsequent dissemination:  All materials for the events will be ready and distribute in advance of the vents via the event websites.  This will allow participants to review the materials beforehand and prepare themselves for the face-to-face activities.  As necessary these materials will be updated after the events and remain available for download and generally use by participants via the APLAC and PAC websites on an ongoing basis.

5)  Lack of evaluation of outputs:  Registration shall be through the use of specifically designed event websites with automated, easy to complete feedback surveys and reporting which is part of the functionality of this online tool, and the results will be reported during the Progress Report and Final Report for the project.

6)  Inadequate participation from member economies: In accordance with the project methodology and internal event checklists invitations to interested parties are expected to be issued in early 2018 before APEC 2018 SOMI – this will give up to five months advance notice of the events.  Most of the locations proposed (Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Kyoto, Port Moresby) are generally easy to reach, or will have critical mass of APEC delegates attending APEC related meetings in any case.

7)  Delays in implementation: This project will avoid delays by having clear and timely communication with co-sponsoring economies, the APEC Secretariat, and the experts participating in the events. Teleconferences in the project team will be held regularly before the events to ensure coordinated and timely execution.

Monitoring and Evaluation

The principal method to determine whether the project objectives have been met is the feedback responses from the events.  The feedback surveys for each event will necessarily be different as the events address different objectives.  For example, the online feedback for the event with APEC delegates will have questions that focus on objective 1 regarding improving awareness of APEC delegates and other public policy officials about the role that accreditation plays in economic efficiency, trade and good regulatory practice. The feedback survey of other events will reflect objectives 2 and 3 related to the understanding and application of the new edition of ISO/IEC 17011 by accreditation bodies within APEC Member Economies and peer evaluators. 

Other indicators will include achievement of project milestones; adherence to the approved budget; the development and ongoing dissemination the event materials; successful completion of the actual events; and statistics in relation to the numbers and gender of participants etc.  The expected number of participants is at least 10 accreditation executives, 21 technical/quality managers and 35 peer evaluators.

Linkages

Other APEC stakeholders that will be invited to attend the APEC delegates 1-day event will include other APEC fora that facilitate the acceptance of conformity assessment results (ABAC, AD, CD, EGILAT, EWG, FSCF as SCSC’s sub-group, MAG, PPSTI, SCCP, TELWG and TPTWG) and the other APEC-SCSC Specialist Regional Bodies (APMP, APMLF and PASC).  It is anticipated the awareness raising at the first event will reaffirm understanding of accreditation as a useful policy tool, and result in identifying new opportunities for future cross-collaboration between APEC fora.

The project has been developed with the full knowledge and support of the two APEC Specialist Regional Bodies related to accreditation, namely APLAC and PAC and is an integral part of their plans for assisting their accreditation body members to transition to the new edition of ISO/IEC 17011.

APEC is the best source of funds for this project because accredited conformity assessment is often necessary, and is an essential tool, to facilitate trade and trust across APEC Member Economies.  There is really no other organization in Asia Pacific that champions economic integration and facilitates trade, and also has a specific objective for promoting the acceptance of conformity assessment results.

Sustainability

From a technical point of view, this project will have a lasting impact amongst APEC member economies because it updates and builds the capacity of accreditation bodies in the region to carry out their activities in accordance with the new edition of the international standard for accepted accreditation practice.  The adjustment to the new standard will have a transition period ending in 2020.  Accreditation bodies that do not demonstrate conformity with the new edition of the standard after this point run the risk of not having the conformity assessment results that they accredit being accepted in other APEC member economies.  This could have serious consequences for the acceptance of traded goods and services across the region.  Fortunately, through this project and other similar initiatives every effort is being made by the APEC Specialist Regional Bodies for accreditation, APLAC and PAC, to ensure their member accreditation bodies meet the transition deadline and this ensure accredited conformity assessment results continue to be mutually recognized without disruption. 

From a policy point of view, this project provides the opportunity for APEC policy officials and senior accreditation body executives to update each other, take stock, and identify new opportunities to engage on the intersection of policy issues and the use of accreditation as a tool to achieve policy outcomes.  This can relate to trade facilitation matters or economic integration under the purview of the APEC CTI, and some of the other APEC groups under APEC ECOTECH.  From this dialogue planned for the events with APEC delegates and the accreditation body chief executives further collaborative initiatives are expected to be identified and followed up in future concept notes and project proposals. 

In terms of specific measurables for the ongoing sustainability of this project three indicators stand out:

·    distribution and continued use and development of the training materials developed during this project by accreditation bodies within the region;

·    the number of accreditation bodies in APEC member economies that successfully transition to the new edition of ISO/IEC 17011 before the 2020 deadline; and

.   the identification of new opportunities for engagement between APEC groups and the APEC Specialist Regional Bodies for accreditation (APLAC and PAC), measured by the development of new concept notes and project proposals that use accreditation as a tool to help achieve regional initiatives.

Project Overseers

The Project Overseers are Mr. Graeme Wolff (Manager) and Mr. Trent Moore (Senior Policy Officer) at the Trade Facilitation Section, Trade and International Branch in the Australian Government Department of Industry, Innovation and Science, Canberra.  Mr. Wolff and Mr. Moore are the Australian representatives in the APEC Sub-Committee on Standards and Conformance (SCSC).  Mr. Wolff and Mr. Moore will manage Mr. Graeme Drake who will be contracted to administer and implement the project on behalf of the Project Overseer.  Mr. Drake is the contracted Secretary of the Pacific Accreditation Cooperation (PAC), one of the two APEC Specialist Regional Bodies (SRBs) for accreditation.  The other sister-body being APLAC.

The Project Overseers will ensure that all Project outputs (Project reports, proceedings, slides, presentations, CDs, etc.) will comply with the APEC Publications, APEC Logo and Copyrights Guidelines before being published and will be provided to the Program Director, who is to review and finalize projects reports including monitoring and completion reports.
