Update 17/07/2019 – Please see the following link for the latest update. CMI Suspension Update 20190717.pdf

11/07/2019
To our valued clients,

Please be advised that CMI has, this morning, received a notification from JAS-ANZ of a temporary suspension in relation to several minor procedural matters that relate to ISO 17065. JAS-ANZ has provided CMI with a detailed list of six (6) actions to be undertaken in order to have the suspension lifted. CMI was surprised to receive this notification as we are audited regularly by JAS-ANZ, including repeated reviews of the six points raised. That said, we are confident that we can close out the non-conformities in a timely manner.

During this period, CMI will not be able to issue any new certifications. CMI will continue with all Surveillance activities for the Australian schemes; however, should the surveillance result in the recommendation to reissue the certificate, reissuance of the Certificate will not occur until the current matters are resolved. For clients waiting to progress to the 2019 building code under CodeMark Australia, your certification under BCA 2016 Amendment 1 remains valid during the 12 month transition period; however, it is at the discretion of the state or territory authority as to whether they will accept the current CodeMark. It should be noted that CodeMark is only one form of evidence of compliance with the BCA.

CMI wishes to assure all of our clients that current certificates in the marketplace are not affected by the suspension and that CMI will be working diligently to have the suspension lifted as soon as possible. In the interim, CMI will directing all of it resources to the rectification of these issues and ask for your patience during this time. CMI will provide a further update to our clients early next week and request that correspondence be limited to emergencies only. Anything urgent should be directed to office@certmark.org.
