TISI certification - TISI certification
Thailand to implement compulsory certification and voluntary certification of the TISI certification system.
For conformable products, the TISI logo is permitted. At the same time, according to the Thai Cabinet resolution, for the product has not yet developed standards, TISI also implemented product registration as a means of temporary certification.
TISI certification - certification scope
The Thai government requires 60 categories of mandatory certification products, covering eight areas, including: electrical equipment and accessories, medical equipment, building materials, consumer goods, vehicles, PVC pipes, LPG gas containers and agricultural products. In addition, other categories of product certification are voluntary certification.
TISI certification - certification testing organizations
The Industrial Product Standards Act authorizes the Thai Industry Standards Association (TISI) to be responsible for Thailand's certification work. TISI is both a competent government authority for Thailand and a standard-setting and regulatory body, a certification body, and a laboratory accreditation, personnel training and registration organization. It is noteworthy that Thailand does not have a non-governmental mandatory certification body.
TISI certification - certification process
Product certification requires products meet the appropriate standards, but also requires manufacturers to improve the quality assurance system to maintain product and standard compliance, so TISI product certification procedures in addition to the type of product testing, but also before the factory inspection And after the supervision of the supervision and review.
(1) product evaluation
TISI evaluates products based on the Thai Industrial Standard (TIS) and the specific requirements for product certification. One of the following three methods can be used:
Samples are taken and tested by designated laboratories
Samples are inspected by TISI qualified officials, accredited by designated laboratories, or laboratory accredited organizations accredited by the Laboratory or Industrial Product Standards Committee accredited by the Thai Laboratory Accreditation System (TLAS).
The samples were inspected by the factory personnel at the factory, and TISI qualified officials were monitored
When it is assumed that the laboratory of the factory is fully equipped with a specific test equipment and qualified personnel, the sampled product can be inspected by the factory personnel at the factory and supervised by qualified TISI officials.
Test report check
If the factory's products have been approved by the Industrial Products Standards Committee for laboratory testing, are exempt from repeated testing. However, if the test report is incomplete or different from the corresponding product certification criteria and specific requirements, TISI can extract samples to supplement these projects.
(2) factory inspection before certification
In the case of a factory inspection prior to the execution of the certification, there is no need for a factory inspection for imported products and only a document review process for the quality control process. For foreign factories, factory inspection is required when reviewing quality control documents indicating that they are not sufficient. If the factory has obtained the ISO 9000 quality management system certificate, its quality control system will be exempt from the review, but the certificate issuing agency should meet the following requirements:
ISO 9000 certification body has been recognized by the Thailand National Accreditation Board (ONAC);
ISO 9000 certification bodies are approved by the Industrial Products Standards Committee.
However, TISI may supplement these projects when the quality management system of the plant is incomplete or differs from the specific requirements of the product certification and the general requirements of the product quality control system.
(3) after the supervision of the supervision and review
After the certification of the supervision and inspection is to ensure that certified products continue to meet the appropriate standards and the factory still has the ability to maintain the quality of certified products, supervision system includes:
The supervisor may use: supervise the quality control system and / or supervise the quality of the certified product. The frequency of the supervisors is determined by the consistency of the quality control system of the holder and the circumstances of the previous supervision.
The supervision of the quality control system
The supervision of the quality control system mainly uses the sampling test of the factory or the market. Samples are inspected by TISI qualified officials, accredited by designated laboratories, or laboratory accredited organizations accredited by the Laboratory or Industrial Product Standards Committee accredited by the Thai Laboratory Accreditation System (TLAS).
Note: In the absence of advance notice, manufacturers, importers, vendors to monitor to ensure that the production and sales of products in line with the Thai TIS standards to prevent the abuse of standard signs and misuse and any violation of "Industrial Product Standards Act" And its revised conduct.
