In the period between 22nd and 26th June 2009 a training session for technical assessors as per ISO/IEC 17025 was held in the Bosnia Hotel in Sarajevo as part of the Project entitled “Development of Quality and Regulatory Infrastructure for Food Safety and Quality in South East Europe”.
The training was organised by the Ministry of Foreign Trade and Economic Relations of Bosnia and Herzegovina and the Institute for Accreditation of B&H (BATA) and was sponsored by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA). In addition to the food specialists and representatives of the training organisers and conformity assessment body in the territory of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the training was attended by the representatives from the neighbouring countries (Serbia, Montenegro and Macedonia).
The lecturers were lead assessors and instructors of the Swedish Board for Accreditation and Conformity Assessment (SWEDAC) - Curt Peter Askolin, Adia Groza and Ingrid Arremark. During the training the delegates had a chance to obtain from top quality lecturers a wealth of information, interpretation of the standard requirements, advice and instructions pertaining to organisational aspects, and assessment performance.
At the end of the training course the delegates, being the members of assessment teams, demonstrated their abilities (role play) in direct interaction with their lecturers. Upon the completion of the training course the delegates were presented with certificates of technical assessor course completion as per ISO/IEC 17025.
