R2V3 COMMENT DEADLINE - The deadline to submit your R2V3 comments is THIS MONDAY - MAY 20t
Curious about the DRAFT of the R2V3 standard? Your input is needed! The public comment period began on April 2nd, 2019 and is open until Monday. This is a multi-stakeholder standard that depends on your comments during this DRAFT period.
Take a look HERE
Upgrading to ISO 45001
The deadline for upgrading from OHSAS 18001 to ISO 45001 is March 12, 2021, however, your registrar will want you to complete your audit at least 3 months before that date in case there are any holdups for any reason.
For those of you that are R2 certified, depending on the release of the R2V3, the timing might work out perfectly for you to upgrade to the new R2V3 and ISO45001 for your 2020 audit date.
Of course, Greeneye Partners will be available to help upgrade your documents and train you on the new versions!

Tested Components for Resale
We often get questions about how to demonstrate you’ve tested components before reselling. What do you do if you test components as part of a working device and then disassemble and sell them individually? If your auditor picked a component you were selling on say, eBay and then asked you to demonstrate how you tested it, how would you show that?
Think about the objective evidence you would use to demonstrate conformance with standard requirements. Saying you train your employees to only take components from a tested working unit is not enough. So think; ID numbers, grading tables, testing logs, serial numbers, software or inventory numbers that follow a component through your facility. How would an auditor track back through your process to see you’d tested to the requirements?
