The aim of this document is to inform IRIS rev.03 certified organizations, organizations starting the IRIS Certification® process and other stakeholders that the IRIS Management Centre (IMC), in response of the outbreak of the recent coronavirus, is monitoring the situation closely and has developed and approved rules and procedures to overcome this extraordinary situation.本文件的目的是通知IRIS03已获证组织,已开始IRIS认证进程的组织以及其他相关方,为了应对最近爆发的新冠肺炎疫情,IRIS管理中心(IMC)正密切关注疫情的发展,并制定了相关的规则和程序以共渡此非常时期。

Due to this current situation, IRIS approved certification bodies may temporarily be unable to perform specific certification-related activities. Therefore, IMC is in close contact with the certification bodies, who themselves are the main contact point for all the affected companies. The IRIS audits are postponed for the concerned countries (see appendix) until a stable situation is back.基于目前的状况,IRIS批准认证机构可以暂时停止与认证有关的活动,各认证机构是受影响组织的主要联系窗口,IMC正与各认证机构保持密切沟通,附件为IRIS审核暂停国家名单,待疫情稳定后认证工作将会恢复正常。

All the defined rules and procedures aim to ensure the continuity of the IRIS Certification® for the affected organizations and to ensure the quality of the audit process through on-site audits and finally maintain the confidence of your organization and your customer on the IRIS Certificate.所有已制定的规则和程序目的在于确保受影响组织IRIS认证的连续性,并通过现场审核的方式来确保审核质量以维护你们以及你们的客户对IRIS认证的信心。

Our priority are the health and safety of the involved parties, as well as the responsibility towards them and the confidence on the IRIS Certificate.大家的优先考虑是相关方的健康和安全,以及维护大家对IRIS认证的信任。

This document represents the current status and may evolve according to the development of the disease. The IRIS Portal (www.iris-rail.org) is still the main source for any information related to this topic including updates. 本文件是基于现在的疫情状况制定并会根据其发展进行相应调整,IRIS网站仍然是大家了解与此相关信息的首要来源。


The precondition for the expiration date of the IRIS certificate is suspended. (IRIS Certification? rules:2017, clause 4.1.2 Certificate cycle: The expiration date of the certificate is maximum three (3) years minus one (1) day from the last day of the certification audit (reference date), under the precondition that all subsequent surveillance audits during this time are successful in meeting the requirements). 以前关于IRIS认证有效期的规定暂停(IRIS认证规则:2017,4.1.2中关于认证周期:认证有效期最多为参考日期后三年的前一天,前提是在这个周期内通过所有的有关监督审核)。

The current audit validity is extended for 3 months (90 calendar days) for the concerned

organizations. The extension is based on the reference date of the organization and is visible in the IRIS Portal.现在对于受影响的组织其认证有效期可延长三个月(90天),这个延长是基于其参考日期的,在IRIS网站可以查到。

IMC is ensuring that these organizations are still visible in the IRIS Portal for the public as IRIS certified organization. IMC目的是确保这些组织仍然作为已获证的组织可以在IRIS网站上查询。

For the application status, please refer to the appendix: List of countries.具体情况请见附录的国家清单。


Following criteria are the basis for the defined specific rules and procedures:以下为采取措施的准则:

The reference date of each organization is the trigger for the different actions组织的参考日期为采取措施的基础

IRIS audits are to be performed on-site according to the IRIS Certification? rules:2017 IRIS审核仍将根据IRIS认证规则:2017的要求进行现场审核

The different actions are managed country by country based on the evolution of this extraordinary situation每个国家可根据疫情情况采取不同的措施

Certification bodies are responsible for the application of the rules and the support to their customers认证机构负责规则的实施以及对其顾客的支撑

IMC Official Re-Start date (IORS): is introduced as a date to restart activities according to rules defined in this document. This date is defined by the IMC country by country based on: IMC正式重启日期(IORS)为IMC依据此 规则发布的活动重启日期,此日期由IMC根据以下信息按照不同国家的情况发布

? The official acknowledged worldwide situation (World Health Organization) applied to

the respective countries来自世卫组织的正式认可的各国疫情信息

? The full return to normal conditions (full operation on-site) of the whole country, without any restriction, e.g. travel bans, border closure, visa validation, …恢复正常状况指的是整个国家没有任何限制,如旅行禁令,边界关闭,签证限制等。

Only when IMC defines the IORS for a country, the CBs can re-start the planning of the postponed audits.只有IMC确定了IORS日期,认证机构才能重启审核策划。

All audit types are to be performed after 45 calendar days from the defined IORS, based on an official communication through the IRIS Portal (see appendix).所有类型的审核都应通过IRIS网站进行正式沟通,并在确定的IORS日期45天后实施。

As described in the figure below, the IORS considers the availability of the data from the organization, which can only be provided after full operation recovery of the organization, to demonstrate the current performance. It also considers the proper preparation of the on-site audit.如下图所示,IORS考虑了资料的获取,资料需在组织的运营全面恢复后提交,以展示企业的现行绩效,并且考虑了现场审核准备的时间。



For countries still working under normal conditions, audits can still be performed under the responsibilities of certification bodies and the organizations. The audits are to be compliant with the IRIS Certification? rules:2017.对于那些仍然正常工作的国家,审核还可以按照IRIS认证规则:2017进行。

Countries where the outbreak of the coronavirus is confirmed and the local restrictions are in place (no business continuity for all employees), the IRIS audits are postponed until a stable situation is back.爆发新冠疫情的国家,企业未全面恢复生产,仍然有部分限制的,IRIS审核推迟至重回稳定状态。

These two conditions apply to all type of audits (Certification / Surveillance / Re-certification audits) and for the assessment of the related remote locations and site extensions.这两个条件适用于所有类型的审核(认证/监督/换证审核)以及对相关远程支撑场所和扩展地址的审核。



For other types of audits, e.g. transfer of CB, change of location, … the application rules are described above in clause 4 “Management of IRIS audits”.对于其它类型的审核,如机构转移,地址变更,上面第4条IRIS审核的管理规定适用。

All other rules of the IRIS Certification? rules:2017, clause 6 “Other audits”, are maintained.所有IRIS认证规则:2017规定的其它审核,第6条“其它审核”继续适用。


If the auditor has identified nonconformities before the organizations’ activity stop, compliance with all the requirements for the nonconformity management process as defined in the IRIS Certification? rules:2017, clause 13 “Nonconformity management” shall be ensured.如果不合格是在组织的活动停止前审核时提出的,必须确保按照IRIS认证规则:2017第13条规定。

For the review of the effectiveness of the corrective actions the following rules apply:不合格有效性评审规定如下:


Table 2: Nonconformity Management based on type of non-compliance基于不合格类型的管理规定


Audits postponed due to Covid-19 and performed after 1st May 2020 are not officially eligible for the Silver Quality Performance Level.由于新冠肺炎爆发而推迟至2020年5月1日后审核的不适用于银牌的授予。
