“There is no such thing as away”
The R2v3 certification in Singapore will be issued only after the complete R2v3 audit process. This audit process includes the R2v3 audit, technical reviews related to the audit, and the closure of any other non-conformances.
What are the non-conformances?
The non-conformances may include a COP that requires a verification audit to be performed and in addition to that they expect to confirm the implementation and determination of the issuance of the certificate. If any additional steps are involved, then it might add some more time. Hence, you need to plan accordingly as per the needs.
