Following the latest announcement from the Government this week to limit non-essential travel and contact with others and also self-imposed company restrictions, with regards to COVID-19, please see below CEEQUAL’s advice regarding the assessment process:
- Please seek to conduct all meetings, scope-out and verifications, via tele-conference, Skype or any equivalent service, until such time that it is advised that restrictions have been lifted from the Government and your company(ies).
- Please liaise with your Verifier and do whatever you can to establish their understanding of the site. For example, look into providing a virtual tour of the project through either via a video or photos.
- Subject to you and your verifiers availability, spread out the verification meeting into sessions. Spending a whole day on Skype could be quite a challenge in itself!
We trust you find the above enables assessments to continue to take place and be submitted to the same level of assurance expected.
If you have any queries regarding this temporary approach to the assessment process, please do not hesitate to contact your Verifier or CEEQUAL at email@example.com.
