intacs® Certification Scheme

 

The intacs® scheme is an independent and legally registered nonprofit organization with open and transparent operations in an honorary capacity and a global and multilingual presence.


The mission is to ensure high-quality assessor qualification in the worldwide community for process assessments according to ISO/IEC 33xxx. Also, the latest development in standards, e.g., ISO/IEC 33xxx, will be reflected in training and guidelines for the assessors.

Due to the need to improve assessment performance, to reduce variations in the quality of assessment results, and to make results more comparable, intacs® Certification Scheme was set up in 2006 in response to requests from industry and international ISO/IEC 33xxx experts. The certification scheme is the property of iNTACS e.V..


To reach these goals, intacs®

  • sets training and certification standards for ISO/IEC 33xxx assessors
  • sets standards for maintaining assessor competence
  • promotes assessment models, extentions and community interactions

intacs® is the scheme accepted by the automotive industry and the VDA-QMC (operating and maintaining the process requirements for car manufacturers and n-tier suppliers).
