HWE SPICE PAM/PRM

New intacs procedure valid from July 1st, 2018

Since 1st of July 2018 a new assessor certification and experience evidence procedure available on www.intacs.info applies.

The new procedure has been setup to address the input of the VDA QMC working group 13 with respect to specific requirements from the automotive domain. Another goal was to clear up and strengthen trhe role of the lead assessor as required by the 330xx series of standards.

In general only lead assessors (competent, principal or instructor) are affected by the changes, no changes apply for the provisional level.

All certification rules are now PAM-dependent in general. This was necessary to adopt the different requirements on assessor certification from the different domains. Intacs has added two additional types of evidence in the EE-concept:

  • Active assessment experience now necessary for renewal of lead assessor license (EE-AL)
  • Active training now necessary for renewal of instructor license (EE-CT)

Due to this changes in the experience evidence concept a new numbering scheme has been introduced, see the new procedure "Concept of EE".

For all assessors of the automotive domain lead assessors the participation in a “Intacs Introduction to VDA Automotive SPICE Guideline” course for Automotive SPICE lead assessors is now required for the frirst certification and the renewal of the assessor license.

As an additional change all renewal criteria of lead assessors with respect to required assessment experience have been harmonized. Last but not least any cross-certification is now restricted to intacs competent assessors from other certification bodies. A cross-certification for other models such as CMMI is not possible any more.

An overview and additional information are available in the following presentation:
