Technical experts are responsible for:

  • Working with ANAB and the lead assessor to assist in development of an assessment plan.
  • Working under the direction of the lead assessor to complete the assignment as directed.
  • Using their technical knowledge to ensure correct performance of the relevant technical activities as assigned by the lead assessor.
  • Providing the lead assessor a thorough description of any technical deficiencies identified.
  • Providing a detailed summary of all technical comments and observations relating to the competency and technical capability of the observed customer.
