The aim of the sector committees of SAS is to interpret the accreditation demands for special sectors and fields. This way, they support the conformity assessment bodies (CABs) and SAS in gaining a mutual understanding of these demands. Therefore they make it easier for the CABs to meet these demands and for the SAS to assess compliance with them.
The sector committees represent an important link between the SAS and the corresponding special fields. They consist of the stakeholder representatives (branches, trade associations, authorities, etc.) and lead assessors as well as technical experts of the SAS.
