Reissuance of test reports
Reissuance of test reports when the trade name / trademark of the tested product has changed
Expires in May the transitional period for the adaptation of Testing Laboratories to the regulations set by EA General Assembly in the resolution 2014 (33) 13 which is applicable in case of reissuance of test reports.
Reissuance of test reports when the trade name / trademark of the tested product has changed (clause 5.10.9 of ISO/IEC 17025)
Test reports shall be reissued only for the correction of errors and the inclusion of omitted data available at the time of test.
The unique identification of the sample shall be given and any manufacturers branding or labelling may also be shown and marked as such.
The practice which consists for an accredited laboratory in reissuing a test report under accreditation when the trade name / trademark of the tested product has changed (without testing it again) is not permitted, even with a clear reference to the initial report that it replaces.
The product tested has been clearly identified both in the contract review and in the test report.
The laboratory shall not assume the responsibility for declaring that the product with the new trade name/trademark is strictly identical to the one tested; this responsibility belongs to the client.
CSI S.p.A , with effect from May 2015, respects the above resolution EA, and does not reissue the test reports that involve any type of change of the name of the tested sample.
