Swedac offers accreditation with flexible scope, which means that those authorised to use the flexible accreditation scope are entitled to upgrade, for example, add and modify the scope of their accreditation, without prior notice to Swedac.

Accreditation with flexible scope requires that the body follows its routine for the introduction of new methods. Swedac retrospectively examines and evaluates the methodological changes made within the framework of flexibility.

This means that the scope presented on the Swedac website does not always correspond with the scope that the accredited body itself presents. The body should always have an updated list of the methods that are current, and it must be presented whenever Swedac or any customer so requests.

Flexibility can be given in different degrees, as evidenced by the accreditation scope.
