§ 1326.16. Certifying Agent On-site Inspections.
(a) In order to receive and maintain accreditation, an accredited certifying agent must allow on-site inspections for the purpose of examining the certifying agent's operations and records to evaluate its compliance with the Act and this Chapter. On-site inspections shall include a review of the certifying agent's certification procedures, facilities, administrative and management systems for production or distribution operations certified by the certifying agent. On-site inspections shall be conducted by a representative(s) of the Department.
(b) An initial on-site inspection of an accreditation applicant may, at the discretion of the Department, be conducted before or after issuance of the applicant's “notice of accreditation.” An on-site inspection shall be conducted after application for renewal of accreditation, but prior to the issuance of a notice of renewal of accreditation. One or more on-site inspections will be conducted during the period of accreditation to determine whether an accredited certifying agent is complying with the requirements set forth in section 1326.10 of this Article.
