[cabfpub] RV: Text for ETSI Audit in CAB Forum baseline

yesterday was agreed to have full audits yearly to meet browser requirements. So even eIDAS says the 2 years audit with anual surveillance audits, it was decided to change to yearly full audits, and that´s what the text from Nick reflects.

This is in the CABF documents affecting the SSL certificates at the moment.

My only comment on Nick’s proposal is on frequency.

In Mr Wanko’s presentation he has:

“7.4.6 Audit Frequency

•There shall be a period of no greater than two years for a full (re-)assessment audit unless otherwise required by the […] commercial scheme applying the present document.

7.9 Surveillance

•[…] It is recommended that at least one surveillance audit per year is performed in between full (re-)assessment audits. ”

Which I think captures the eIDAS regulation rather than Nick’s proposal for a full audit annually, so I would change the final sentence to:

“Full audits against the ETSI standards shall be carried out at least every two years and there should be at least one surveillance audit per year between full audits. ”

Subject: Text for ETSI Audit in CAB Forum baseline


Following on from my presentation today on the latest ETSI standards and that of the ACAB’c I would suggest that the CABF baseline requirements section 8.2 item on audits against ETSI standards is replaced with the following.  I ask my EU colleagues to come with in any further suggestions.

4. For audits conducted in accordance with any one of the ETSI standards, conformity assessment bodies accredited in accordance with ISO 17065 applying the requirements specified in EN 319 403.  Full audits against the ETSI standards shall be carried out annually.

Elsewhere replace reference to TS 102 042 with EN 319 411-1.

Thanks for the interesting discussions today.
