Notice of Proposed Standards Activity

Volume 1 Modules 1 and 3 of the NELAC Institute's (TNI) Stationary Source Audit Sample Program standards address "General Requirements for Stationary Source Audit Sample Providers” and “General Requirements for Participation in the TNI Stationary Source Audit Sample Program." The TNI Stationary Source Audit Sample Expert Committee (SSAS) seeks to review and update Volume 1 Modules 1 and 3 of the Standard. The review will encompass any Standard Comment Forms and responses from all stages of the previous standards development activity, any comments previously placed on hold during the previous standards development, Standards Interpretation Requests (SIR) resolutions and any recommendations made by SSAS during the previous standards development activity for future consideration. The updates will include a reference update to ISO/IEC 17011:2017 and ISO/IEC 17025:2017 requirements.

Pursuant to Section 5.2.1 of SOP 2-100v2, SSAS is reaching out to Stakeholders for comments prior to starting work on this update. Stakeholders and stakeholder groups include those who may subsequently adopt this standard, may be accredited to the standard, or may use data generated in compliance to this Standard. We are hosting a public meeting (webinar) on August 27, 2018 at 1pm Eastern to solicit comments and suggestions for the pending update. Comments and suggestions can also be sent by email by the webinar date.

You can request an invitation to the webinar or provide any comments or suggestions by contacting the SSAS Committee Chair, Tom Widera through e-mail at twidera@eraqc.com or the SSAS Program Administrator, Ilona Taunton, through email at Ilona.taunton@nelac-institute.org. Those who are interested in participating and providing input into this process should contact Tom or Ilona within 30 days.
