The European Commission has adopted the implementing regulation concerning the EU Cybersecurity Certification Scheme on Common Criteria (EUCC). It is the first approved scheme under Regulation (EU) 2019/881 (Cybersecurity Act).

This regulation specifies the roles, rules, obligations, and structure of the European Common Criteria-based cybersecurity certification scheme by the European cybersecurity certification framework outlined in the Cybersecurity Act.

The implementing regulation refers to documents known as State-of-the-Art (SoA). There will be – among other things – three SoA documents regarding:

  •  Accreditation of ITSEFs (Information Technology Security Evaluation Facility),
  •  Accreditation of Certification Bodies (CBs), and
  •  Authorisation of CBs and ITSEFs.

The Accreditation Body of Serbia (ATS) is extending its scope of activity to include a new type of accreditation for reference material producers according to the standard SRPS EN ISO 17034:2017 - General requirements for the competence of reference material producers.

Following successfully conducted training facilitated with the support of the TAIEX project and expert colleagues from the Hellenic Accreditation System (ESYD) and the Greek National Food Testing Laboratory, ATS has dedicated itself to developing documentation for the needs of this new type of accreditation for reference material producers by the standard SRPS EN ISO 17034:2017.

New and updated existing documents have been prepared to enable the commencement of accreditation for reference material producers by SRPS EN ISO 17034:2017. We hope that reference material producers will opt to confirm their competence through the accreditation process, in the interest of the users of reference materials themselves, as well as the overall economy of the Republic of Serbia.
