The EE concept (Experience Evidence)
When applying for (re-)certifcation as Competent or Principal Assessor with a certification body the assessor submits EE (evidence of experience with practically applying, and theorectial understanding of, ISO/IEC 15504 and Process Assessment Models. Through this the assessor proves that he keeps in touch the latest SPICE community knowledge & experience, and maintain assessment practice on a regular basis.
The EE requirements are defined by intacsTM while certification bodies independently verify that the applicant has met these requirements when applying for (re-)certification. Thereby the EE concept supports the building of confidence in assessor qualification for all interested parties.
The detailed concepts and regulations are documented in the "intacsTM Procedure for assessor certification and Concept of Experience Evidence".
