Based on the positive result of the re-approval Certification Body Office audit conducted in SEP 2021 at WQS LLC. (Brazil Office), IFS Management GmbH has decided to lift the suspension on 30th SEP 2021.
On 1st May 2017, a new Annex 4, Version 3 of the framework agreement came into force and since that date certification bodies, and also auditors directly, can get negative points in case of assessed breaches (e.g. an amount of 30 or more negative points for a certification body will lead to a 3 months suspension). Investigations within the IFS Integrity Program in connection with decisions of the sanction committee resulted in 30 negative points for the certification body WQS, LLC., leading to a 3 months suspension. This suspension starts on 01st July 2021.
