The guidelines will be now communicated within the members of EWDTS for feedback.
Please send any comments to the chairs of subcommittees by 30th June, 2015:
Please give comments on three levels:
  1. It would be better if you change... including change in the language.
  2. I strongly recommend this/these changes...
  3. If you do not change this/these, I think the guidelines are unacceptable.
The guidelines committee will process the comments and the board will accept the final versions in September, 2015.

The former versions of EWDTS guidelines have been approved by the Laboratory Committee of EA (European co-operation for Accreditation) as a technical document (category 4) and they can be accessed on their website. The approval for these new guidelines will be sought during next autumn.
