ANAB Grants its First Accredidation to TL 9000:2016 (R6) to NQA
NQA (National Quality Assurance) has become the first certification body (CB) to be accredited by ANAB (the ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board) to grant certification to the new TL 9000:2016 (R6) release.
Lori Gillespie, ANAB’s Vice President, Management Systems, stated on Tuesday, February 14, 2017, that “NQA USA’s ANAB accreditation now includes TL 9000:2016 (R6)”. This announcement was made public on the transition list provided on ANAB’s web site, http://anab.org/programs/isoiec-17021/certification-bodies/transitions/.
NQA is one of the world’s top half-dozen TL 9000 CBs (by number of registrations). It completed its first R6 transition audit in December 2016, and has more transition activities in progress. Further R6 transition audits, as well as at least one certification audit, are planned in Q1 and Q2 of 2017
