Guidance on the procurement of independent safety assessors

This guidance for the procurement of independent safety assessment addresses the perceived need for guidance that:

  • Addresses the particular responsibilities that apply to independent safety assessment.
  • Applies consistently to all industry sectors, procuring organisations and types of procurement (including internal ISAs).
  • Is consistent with the reasonable expectations of independent safety assessors who work in accordance with the ISA Working Group Code of Practice for Independent Safety Assessors.

The guidance provides a benchmark for procurement processes and procedures, it is not intended to replace, augment or define them.
