    Scheme operated by EMTAC is determined by the results of conformity assessment
    through preliminary evaluation.
  • This includes scrutiny of the documents provided by the applicant along with the
    application and a preliminary assessment at the applicant’s premises to assess the

    considered for certification.
  • Subject to all assessment hereto being satisfactory, a sample shall be drawn for
    independent testing at EMTAC’s laboratory. Applicant shall submit the engineering
    drawings of all the varieties/types/sizes that they intend to cover under the certification
    Licence.
  • Provided the sample conforms to all the requirement of the specification and
    additional requirements, as may be specified in the scheme and the applicant
    has fulfilled all other conditions, the case shall be taken up for grant of license.
  • In case the sample fails in testing, the applicant will be advised to submit a fresh
    sample for testing. If the second sample also fails the application will be rejected.

PROCEDURE FOR CHANGES IN CERTIFICATION SCOPE

All changes affecting certified products shall be addressed and evaluated by EMTAC to ensure continued compliance with the certification scheme. The changes and procedures for effecting these changes are given under:

STOPMARKING AND TERMINATION OF LICENCE
  • EMTAC will conduct at least two surveillance audits during one operative year. During the surveillance visit, the auditor will verify the compliance to the conditions of operation of the Licence.
  • Sample shall only be drawn from certified product. In case of failure of a sample during the
    surveillance, the licensee shall be immediately informed of the failure and advised to take
    corrective action within a month or the next production whichever is earlier.
  • The corrective actions documented by licensee will be reviewed by COC and necessary
    modifications shall be made in the relevant documents by the licensee.
  • In the event of this sample also failing to comply with the requirements of the standard,
    the case shall be put up to COC for consideration of Stop-Marking.
  • The stop marking instructions shall be revoked on verification of adequacy of corrective
    actions taken by the licensee. Such verification may involve testing of a sample.
    Wherever possible the verification and/or testing shall be done at the licensee’s
    premises to speed up the process.
  • On receipt of stop marking instructions, the licensee shall forthwith discontinue use of
    the labels and officially confirm compliance. Continuation of use of labels will be
    considered a deliberate violation of the conditions of the Licence and may invite serious
    deterrent actions like termination of Licence.
  • The validity of a Licence may be terminated at the end of an operative period(non-
    renewal) or during an operative period (cancellation) .

A Licence may be cancelled in the following manner;

  • Licensee withdraws Certification (90 days prior notice to be served to EMTAC)
  • In the event of EMTAC determining a serious violation of the conditions of the
    Licence, the Licence may be cancelled forthwith without any notice
  • Licence may be terminated by EMTAC, upon Non- payment of financial dues to
    EMTAC (A prior notice of 30 days will be given by EMTAC to the licensee).
  • In case, the product fails to meet the requirements of the standard Licence may
    be terminated with a 30 days prior notice by EMTAC.
  • Non- submission of Renewal Application within specified period by Licensee may
    also lead to termination and no notice need be given by EMTAC in this event, as
    the Licence already ceases to exist beyond the validity period.
  • In the event of non- renewal of Licence by EMTAC, there shall be no notice as the
    Licence already ceases to exist beyond the validity period. However, a decision
    will be conveyed to Licensee within 7 days of submission of Renewal Application.
