Application of Standards in Auditing of Stations for Technical Inspection of Vehicles
AbstractThe HRN EN ISO/IEC 17020:2005 requirements have been applied to the auditing of the operation of the stations for technical inspection of vehicles which, as part of the system of technical inspections and registration of vehicles in the Republic of Croatia is carried out by the Croatian Automobile Club, based on the public accreditation issued by the Ministry of the Interior of the Republic of Croatia. The direct consequence of the application of this standard, i. e. the implementation of the quality management system is the improvement of the quality and efficiency in performing the respective activity, thus raising the level of technical roadworthiness of vehicles, i. e. traffic safety on the roads in the Republic of Croatia. KEY WORDS: supervisory/inspection bodies, quality, quality management, technical inspection of vehicles, auditing
