Extension to scope audit
7:55AM 30 July 2018
Hi, can I ask if anyone has had an extension to scope audit for S&D and if so does this have to be carried out by the existing certification body?  Also is there a checklist for extension to scope audits?  Thanks,  Samantha

Hi Samantha. The Certifying Body owns the certificate, so only they can make alterations to it, so yes it needs to be carried out by the existing certification body. There is a report format that the CB needs to use although this isn't a specific 'checklist' as the extension to scope visit will vary depending on the changes that need to be made. Hope that helps
Distribution without the Storage Element

I have a client previously accredited to S & D that has now removed the storage element of their business and thus has become a Distribution/Transport company only. Can they still continue with accreditation to the standard? I believe that they can after consulting the standard and interpretation guide but your thoughts from any one experienced in this area would be most interesting!
