The Textile Industry dictates accreditation of AA, through TSC.
AAs could be for all segments of the industry (yarn &fabric manufacturing including handlooms and chemical processing) on pan-India basis; or restricted in scope of geography and/or segments.
Establishing monopoly will be guarded against.
Assessment concept of Independent Assessors empanelled with AA, identified, selected, trained and certified on Assessment techniques. These assessors should be aligned to assess as per the laid down criteria.
Accreditation of AA will be periodically reviewed on a 360o basis, besides regular audit of the AAs. TSC reserves the right to withdraw the accreditation based on the reports of periodic review and audit / reports of irregularity from the stake holders.
Appointing a Lead Assessment Body may be considered for quality assurance and uniformity of operations across multiple AAs.
