    • “B,” Basics of Certification Noncompliance:C e r t i fi c a t i o n • Major nonconformity is: • If one or more elements of the standard have not been documented or implemented; AB C s o f • When several elements of the standard show similar nonconformities (a trend); • A situation that raises significant doubt about the ability of the clients management system to achieve its intended outputs; • Minor nonconformity is: • Noncompliance that judgment and experience indicate the situation is not likely to result in the failure of the Environmental/Recycling System or reduce its ability to assure controlled processes. It may be either: • A failure in some part of the documented System relative to recycling standard, • An observed lapse in following one item of a company’s recycling system. A single instance may or may not rise to the level of a nonconformity, depending on circumstances. Orion Registrar, Inc. - www.orion4value.com - 303-456-6010 Pg. 11
