In July of this year, ICorr/CORREX had a very successful audit with LRQA and passed with no recommendations for action or non-conformances.
In the build-up to the audit, ISO 17024 was added to the audit schedule, and also added to the ICorr/CORREX Quality Manual. This meant that our forms and documents had to be changed to comply with this standard. All students being registered for ICATS training will now have to sign any application and ensure address and other details are correct. The forms also contain essential information for guidance to students and trainers. It is hoped to introduce the new forms during October.
The ICATS reqDoc containing all the guidance for ICATS training is also being updated to reflect ISO 17024 and other changes. Remote training and guidance as well as other information is being added. And it is hoped to have this document approved in the near future.
As the UK slowly returns to some normality, we are now beginning to consider ICATS training in Northampton in the Autumn. The proposed dates will be put on the ICATS website during September for Supervisor, Trainer and Manager courses.
