Conditions for Scope Extension
TÜV NORD Singapore, in response to an application for extension/reduction to the scope of a certification already granted, undertake a review of the application and determine any audit activities necessary to decide whether or not the request be granted. This may be conducted in conjunction with the surveillance audit, re-certification audit or on an independently selected date. The validity period of the certificate remains unaffected.
The audit team leader / audit team will review the Management System documents concerning the extended areas / new locations/reductions and audit all requirements which are affected by it. A refusal of certification relates to the non-issuance of the certificate.
The refusing of the certificate is possible, when the company doesn´t meet the requirements of the relevant standard or it is not able to be certified.
