Grace Period for Assessor Certification

If an assessor is not able to collect all necessary Experience Evidence due to cancelled assessments or events because of the pandemic time period, the Certification Bodies will grant up to 6 additional months for collecting and providing the missing EEs.

But the additional time does not mean that the certification period will be extended! E.g. if the current period is from January 2018 to December 2020, and you use the first 6 months of 2021 to collect missing EEs, the new period will still be from January 2021 to December 2023.

And another procedure rule still applies: Already used EEs cannot be used twice! E.g. if you collect EEs within the first 6 months of 2021 in order to use them for the certification period from 2021 to 2023, you cannot use these EEs for the next certification period even if they are within the 36 months’ time frame.

Current rules for online activities

The current pandemic situation does still not allow to perform all SPICE related activities onsite. intacs™ and VDA QMC already accepted to perform assessments and trainings completely online for a limited time. But not all activities ensure the same high-quality expectations of intacs™. Therefore, the current rules apply (status as of Nov. 1st, 2020):

This also includes the online exams.

For the “intacs™ certified Competent Assessor” training, there are mandatory rules:
