The Dutch Ministry of Social Affairs requires the accredited inspection of lifts
Dutch ministries are increasingly relying on accreditation for designating notified body activity. For example, CAB’s examining and inspecting lifts require an ISO/IEC 17020 accreditation to be designated a notified body (Directive 95/16/EC) by the Ministry of Social Affairs. For the ministry, accreditation is adequate proof of the CAB’s competence.
