To improve the oversight and effectiveness of the third party certification process, a new program for the assessment of Accreditation Bodies and Certification Bodies, called the Third Party Effectiveness Verification Program or 3P-EVP was developed. The program is the result of a 3-year effort by QuEST Forum called the Validation Audit Project to collect objective information for evaluation due to feedback that some certified organizations in the telecom or ICT supply chain did not perform as expected.
