The GlobalNet Oversight Board (GOB) Accreditation, through signatories and bearers programs, is an authoritatively empowered public trust granting accreditation to entities that provide certification, validation and inspection activities. These activities are carry through internationally recognizable and generally acceptable (IRGA) benchmarks as a basis to sustain our Charter. For signatory and bearers entities, we conduct activities that carryout assessment - certification under two accreditation - recognition schedules (“A” and “B”). Regardless, for each of these schedules “A” or “B” the signatory needs to demonstrate competence and impartiality by benchmarking current Codes of Federal Regulations, Regulatory Compliance, Compatible Training Venues and Educational programs. The accreditation programs are based on many options which includes IRGA benchmarks ISO/IEC 17021, ISO/TS 22003, ISO/IEC 17020, ISO/IEC 27006, ISO/IEC 17024, ISO/IEC 17065 in applying sovereign nations regulations and equivalent benchmarks. To carryout accreditation of specialty laboratories the applicable IRGA benchmarks are ISO/IEC 17025 and ISO 15189 or local equivalent applicable. We provide alternatives to accreditation - recognition as a public trust.
Accreditation and Recognition are voluntary protocols based systems developed to assess, evaluate, attest and analyze on the GOB legally binding charter, and applies to entities or organizations. Entity - Organization need to demonstrate appropriateness, adequateness and effectiveness within a determined scope of work based local applicable industry codes. The GOB accreditation or recognition process provides assurance to communities and consumers that accredited and recognized entity | organization and institution meet laws and regulations while applying internationally recognized and generally accepted (IRGA) best-in-class benchmarks.
As first step, signatory to the Charter needs to occur, to best serve communities and consumers, the area of RAP (regulatory affairs) includes quality, environmental, food safety, security, energy, technology, occupational health & safety, and social | enterprise accountability | responsibility. As the basis of operation, we benchmark current ISO/IEC 17011. In this way we assure harmonization as signatory to the Charter by affair activities that verify necessary competence and objectiveness at par to other accreditation and recognition programs worldwide.
Signatory to the Charter can be achieved and maintained in self-sustain or to complement others, read as follows.
Schedule “A” (Autonomous self-support)
As signatory, this is to verify through activities that assures benchmark operations in accordance and in compliance with internationally recognized and generally accepted (IRGA) benchmarks that includes ISO/IEC 17020, ISO/IEC 17021, ISO/IEC 27006, ISO/IEC 17024, ISO/IEC 17065, ISO 15189 and ISO/TS 22003 and equivalent - similar others. The protocol requires an onsite place visit of operations, investigative-assessment as well as field attestation to achieve and maintain signatory status within the scope of conduct and competence to (clustered) industry code(s). To maintain signatory status requires surveillance, vigilance and/or monitoring. Further, benchmarking ISO/IEC 17024 carries a designation for associations, institutions, bodies and others granting education, training with objectives on diploma-certification of individual persons at level of a bona fide as signatory to the Charter.
Laboratory activities are through benchmarking ISO/IEC 17025 and ISO 15189; specialty laboratories, including medical, radiology and nuclear fields.
Schedule “B” (Complementary, as chosen by certification programs)
Is for signatories that conduct training, education, conformity assessments and laboratories carrying a current and valid agreement to others with similar activities as those of the GOB, thereof is to complement a current status or recognition or accreditation. Schedule “B” applies by benchmarking internationally recognized and generally accepted benchmarks protocols that wish to extend or to complement their current scope of activities / affairs. Schedule “B” benchmarks, among others, ISO/IEC 17020, ISO/IEC 17021, ISO/IEC 27006 and ISO/TS 22003 requiring that the institution or entity - body carries demonstrable current and valid agreements such as those under accreditation (from either governmental and non-governmental accreditation programs). Schedule “B” requires special agreement to continuous monitoring of the entity through the issuing of recommendations resulting from a combination of assessments affairs and reports issued by others, as it requires limited onsite visits to assure a reasonable and prudent certainty in adhering to the Charter and the agreeable benchmark(s). A regional technical Designee from the The GOB (GlobalNet Oversight Board) will work in collaboration with other entities that carry equal or similar affairs which includes government, academic institutions, et carrying the necessary competence in arriving to reasonable and prudent recommendations.
Both Schedule “A” and “B” can opt to “Cloud Coverage” which means that can combine affair practices such as those under the protocols of accreditation and recognition in which consumers and communities benefit by adhering to the Charter, e.g. converge ISO/IEC 17020 and ISO/IEC 17065 for product and activity certification. In this way maintains the integrity of the protocols while combining the benchmarks under which we can attest, while focusing to benefit communities and consumers.
To carryout recognition and accreditation the resources, deriving from signatories and bearers, need be feasible and viable in ways to maintain and sustain the Charter, primary purpose, to protect communities and consumers. The resources, to first assure anti-fraud, need adherence to anti-corruption and antitrust U.S. laws and local equivalencies.
