The requirements that are placed on you who want to be accredited within an area are stated under each working area. If a working area is missing, an application for acceptance of conformity assessment scheme may be required. The applicant for accreditation is aware of the rules for the accreditation area and commits to complying with them, as well as reporting to Swedac any changes that may affect their ability to maintain the accreditation. An application fee of 4,000 SEK shall be paid by the one submitting an application for accreditation in accordance with §5 STAFS 2022:14.

Application for accreditation

Below, you choose what you are applying for. First time accreditation is only applicable if the organization is not previously accredited. In other cases, choose "change in accreditation." In the first step, only sufficient documentation is required for Swedac to make a cost calculation. In the second step, additional documentation is requested to conduct an assessment that the accreditation requirements are met. If you have all the documentation ready at step 1, it is fine to submit everything in the first step. For the extension of accreditation with a new Conformity Assessment Activity, follow the process for a new application and follow its steps. The accreditation number is only filled in when applying for changed accreditation. Hereby, we apply for accreditation with the Swedish Board for Accreditation and Conformity Assessment (Swedac).
