4 Principles
4.1 General
The principles listed below are the basis for the subsequent guidance in this International Standard. This International Standard does not give specific guidance for all situations that can occur. Therefore, the following principles may provide guidance for such situations:
⎯ principle 1: separation of specified requirements for the object of conformity assessment from specified requirements related to conformity assessment activities (see 4.2);
⎯ principle 2: neutrality towards parties performing conformity assessment activities (see 4.3);
⎯ principle 3: functional approach to conformity assessment (see 4.4);
⎯ principle 4: comparability of conformity assessment results (see 4.5);
⎯ principle 5: good practice in conformity assessment (see 4.6).
Principles 1 and 2 are primarily directed towards the preparation of normative documents that contain specifications for objects of conformity assessment (Clause 5 provides further information). Principle 3 is directed towards the preparation of separate normative documents that contain specifications for how conformity assessment systems are structured and carried out. However, the functional approach can assist the developer of normative documents for characteristics of the object of conformity assessment to anticipate and formulate requirements that can be used in the subsequent conformity assessment activities.
