This training event will take place on 15-16 May 2023 in Islamabad, Pakistan, and is for personnel of APAC Members and APAC Evaluators. The event is kindly hosted by the Pakistan National Accreditation Council (PNAC).
The event will cover technical writing for policies, procedures and work instructions, and also include formulation of appropriate accreditation assessment and APAC evaluation findings, nonconformities, comments, opportunities for improvement, etc. Please note that immediately after this training event there will be a 3-day training course at the same venue on accreditation of product certification bodies (ISO/IEC 17065).

The facilitators will provide insights on how these types of technical writing skills are used in accreditation body practice and participants will be encouraged to share their experiences and ask questions. Attendees are expected to be APAC Member personnel (assessors, managers, accreditation scheme developers) and APAC Evaluators.
