UKAS Imposes Registrar Moratorium; NAP Investigates

On April 22, UKAS imposed a moratorium on new registration activities outside the UK involving the issuing of ISO 9000 and ISO 14001 certificates bearing the UKAS accreditation mark. This dramatic action is in response to complaints from Chinese authorities concerning the practices of foreign registrars operating in the PRC. The moratorium was imposed pending a UKAS investigation of the claims to be completed by the end of July 2002. In addition, ANSI-RAB NAP has launched an investigation of three NAP-accredited registrars operating in China after receiving a report in February. Copies of the announcements are provided.
