Oxebridge whistleblower hotline launched

Tired of griping about the problems UKAS manufactures while the real problems of the ISO gang go on killing people?  Now you can do something about it.

Whistleblow to Oxebridge’s hotline.

Fill in the form, let the experts investigate and apply legal pressure.  You may be protected by whistleblowing laws in your region, but you can “prefer not to say”.

“If you are reporting a crime, contact law enforcement first.”

Oxebridge Launches ISO Whistleblower Hotline
A new way to report problems

Pushing forth on the “third phase” of the path to improve the ISO certification scheme — that’s the one where we file reports with law enforcement agencies, government regulatory bodies and legislative panels — I’m happy to announce we have launched a new ISO Whistleblower Hotline reporting tool, on our brand new website at whistleblower.oxebridge.com.

Now ISO 9001, AS9100 and other management system certification stakeholders can file reports of complaints, conflicts of interest, lawbreaking and other issues to an independent third party (Oxebridge), with the option of doing so with complete anonymity. We will then sort and analyze the entries, and forward them to the appropriate oversight bodies or law enforcement agencies around the world. We will collect the aggregate data on the nature of the issues to help bolster the information we are currently providing to US government legislative committees, as well as to ministries in other countries.

With the latest Boeing 737MAX crashes, the Equifax hack, the Texas chemical plant fires and other scandals impacting on the ISO and AS schemes, it’s no longer up for discussion that the various certification bodies, accreditation bodies and IAF are incapable and unwilling to do their jobs and ensure the validity of ISO certificates. Now it’s a question of how many people are going to have to lose their lives due to defective products and services that would have never reached the market had these companies not been granted drive-by ISO certificates.

I want to pause on that last note: if the IAF-matrixed CBs and ABs done their jobs properly, in many cases these companies would have been denied ISO certification, which would have then denied them access to the contracts which allowed them to build and release defective products and services. So the IAF and its cronies are complicit in these disasters, whether tangentially or directly. They also have tools at their disposal, right now, which can help prevent such things from happening again, and are willfully refusing to use them, in order to protect corrupt CBs and their incompetent auditor pools.

I’m not willing to wait for more people to be harmed. I am asking stakeholders from around the world to report their stories and concerns with the various certification schemes and standards development bodies, so this data can be used to fix these problems once and for all.

To file your report, visit the ISO Whistleblower Hotline webpage. You will not be added to any lists, and your information is not used for any other purposes.

PIP implants – from CE marks to ISO accreditation?

The French court ordered TUV Rheinland was ordered to pay compensation to victims of defective PIP breast implants.  The French regulator, Agence Francaise de Securite Sanitaire des Produits de Sante (AFSSAPS), probably regrets delegating this task to them in the first place.

Insight: In PIP implant scandal, a ragged safety net exposed | Reuters

Here’s one British assessment of the situation from 2013, before the French court ruling.

Martindale V, Menache A. The PIP scandal: an analysis of the process of quality control that failed to safeguard women from the health risks. J R Soc Med. 2013;106(5):173-7.

The Implant Files reveal that parliamentarians in France aren’t happy with the medical devices market.

The two-person commission, French parliamentarians Julien Borowczyk and Pierre Dharréville, offered particularly scathing criticism of device-approval controls now in place across Europe and the potential conflicts of interest in the device approval process, which relies on so-called Notified Bodies, mostly private firms that are paid by device manufacturers themselves.

“The essential place entrusted to these audit bodies … has led to a complete bankruptcy of the health control system for placing [devices] on the market,” the report said.

The commissioners said that the current regulatory regime has never been robust enough to resist the influence of profit-driven device manufacturers intent on speeding products to market even in cases where testing could have been more robust.

“This balance between the manufacturer’s … impulse and the ability of the regulator to counter it, where it poses health safety risks, is probably at the root of the now well-known failures of the control system,” the report said, adding that the current regime “has not undergone a fundamental change, despite successive reforms.”

As a solution, the Commission produced a range of options, including transferring responsibility for assessing high-risk devices, including implants, to a new department within the European Medicines Agency “on an equal footing” with the EMA’s work regulating drugs.

Such a centralized agency, which echoes the system in the United States in which the Food and Drug Administration is the sole authority over device approval, has been proposed over the years by reform advocates both at the European Commission and the European Parliament. As the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists reported, the idea was strenuously opposed by industry lobbyists, sometimes using misleading claims, and ultimately defeated.

Their solution is likely to involve turning from CE marks to much more demanding ISO accreditation that has also failed in many industries.  What else have they got?

We’re going to have to wait and see how that works out.

Hidden FDA Reports Detail Harm Caused by Medical Devices

The FDA keeps suppressed lists of medical device failures.  You can read about it on Medscape:

FDA spokeswoman Deborah Kotz confirmed that the “registry exemption” was created without any public notice or regulations. “Any device manufacturer can request an exemption from its reporting requirements,” she said in an email.

I don’t want to sound overdramatic here, but it seemed like a cover-up. Dr. Douglas Kwazneski, surgeon

Agency records provided to KHN show that more than 480,000 injuries or malfunctions were reported through the alternative summary reporting program in 2017 alone.

There’s no mention of how many devices harmed patients despite ISO certifications.

Corruption of safety certification kills over 180

Mudslide in Brazil: Who is to blame for the deadly dam break ...

Over 180 people have died from a deadly mudslide which caused a faulty Brazilian dam to collapse, in spite of safety certification by TUV Sud.  Read the story here.

Brazil dam collapse: Rescuers search for hundreds buried under mud ...

Third-party accreditation was supposed to prevent this sort of thing.  ISO standards require SOPs they say prevent corruption.  National courts take the claims of accreditation bodies at face value.

Note Oxebridge’s explanation of the structures that enable this deadly situation.

So whereas in the old days these conflicts were typically seen as consultants and auditors swapped envelopes of cash under tables to ensure clients passed audits, now the corruption is nearly entirely institutionalized. And now people are being killed and put at risk. Governments — most especially that of the UK — look the other way, happy to have “privatized standardization” and to boast about third-party accreditation schemes, while ignoring the corruption. It’s so bad in the UK that HRH Princess Anne feted an organization that supports a CB who literally issued an ISO 9001 certificate to a heroin smuggling ring; we have no idea how many people were killed by their client.

The scheme is supposed to be overseen by a network of official “Accreditation Bodies” (ABs) who are all signatory members of the International Accreditation Forum (IAF), a shadowy organization answerable to no one, but with its hooks in the governments of various nations. Bodies such as UKAS, ANAB and DAkkS — the latter of which should be overseeing TUV in the Vale disaster — routinely look the other way after such scandals, and are never called on the carpet by regulators or investigators. They escape scrutiny through a convenient mix of obscurity and complexity — no one knows who they are, nor really what they do — and yet their executives probably have more information on these disasters than anyone on the planet.

At some point, a government will have to take notice, and pull in the entire troika — the CB, AB and IAF — after enough people die. This doesn’t imply guilt, mind you, but it would recognize that the auditors involved must have information that is critical to the investigation and public safety. If corruption is uncovered, then so be it, and the appropriate parties should be arrested. If not, at least we can say we had a thorough investigation.

So why have accreditation at all?

The Reasons Why The Globalists Are Destined To Lose

We have previously drawn attention to how ISO accreditation pretends to assure quality.  Yet it fails to take legal responsibility for this assurance or offer money-back guarantees like most companies do when they have any confidence in their product.

Choosing a Registered Certification Body (an auditor to ...

Some pieces of the inspection pyramid scheme

BSI’s accreditation pyramid scam hints at being scientific but is far from it.  For technical matters, it demands levels of uncertainty measurement that are often disproportionate, making them certainly wasteful.

https://i1.wp.com/piapilot.se/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/waste_muda.gif

Waste

To deliver the total control the accreditation bodies suggest, control of every element would be required.  Even in relatively simple systems, perfection is not possible.

The BSI’s plan for world conformity was formed in the political and philosophical climate of mid-twentieth century globalism.  It formed a rather pathetic, yet damaging, way for Britain to have continued influence – by bringing competitors down to its declining levels of industrial quality.

It’s truly international now

Brandon Smith has invoked Heisenberg and Godel’s work to explain the limitations of the globalists’ claims in The Reasons Why The Globalists Are Destined To Lose:

 

Total Control vs. Reality

This is where the globalists philosophy really begins to break down. The elitist pursuit of total information awareness and total social control is truly perverse and insane, and insanity breeds delusion and weakness.  The fact is, they will NEVER complete the goal of complete micro-control. It is mathematically and psychologically impossible.

First, in any system, and in complex systems most of all, there are always elements that cannot be quantified or predicted. To understand this issue, I recommend studying the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle. To summarize, the uncertainty principle dictates that anyone observing a system in action, even from a distance, can still affect the behavior of that system indirectly or unconsciously in ways they could never predict.  They are also limited by their ability to objectively perceive all available elements of what they observe.  Unknown quantities result, predictability goes out the window and total control of that system becomes unattainable.

This principle also applies to human psychology, as numerous psychoanalysts have discovered when treating patients. The doctor, or the observer, is never able to observe their patient without indirectly affecting the behavior of their patient in unpredictable ways. Therefore, a completely objective analysis of that patient can never be obtained.

What the elites seek is a system by which they can observe and influence all of us in minute detail without triggering a reaction that they wouldn’t expect.  The laws of physics and psychology derail this level of control.  There will always be unknown quantities, free radicals, wild cards, etc. Even a seemingly perfect utopia can be brought down by a single unknown.

To break this down even further to the level of pure mathematics, I recommend study into Kurt Godel and his Incompleteness Proof. This, I believe is the ultimate example of the elites struggling against the fact of unknown quantities and failing.

Godel’s work revolved around either proving or disproving the idea that mathematicians could define “infinity” in mathematical terms. For, if infinity can be defined, then it can be understood in base mathematical axioms, and if infinity can be understood, then the universe in its entirety can be understood. Godel discovered the opposite — his incompleteness proof established once and for all that infinity is a self inclusive paradox that CANNOT be defined through mathematics. Keep in mind that a proof is a set of mathematical laws that can never be broken. Two plus two will always equal four; it will never equal anything else.

Well known globalist Bertrand Russell worked tirelessly to show that the entirety of the universe could be broken down into numbers, writing a three volume monstrosity called the Principia Mathematica.  Russell’s efforts were fruitless and Godel’s proof later crushed his theory. Russell railed against Godel’s proof, but to no avail.

Now, why was an elitist like Russell who openly championed scientific dictatorship so concerned by Godel? Well, because Godel, in mathematical terms, destroyed the very core of the globalist ideology. He proved that the globalist aspirations of godhood would never be realized. There are limits to the knowledge of man, and limits to what he can control.  This is not something globalists can ever accept, for if they did, every effort they have made for decades if not centuries would be pointless.

As mentioned earlier, the issue is one of unknown quantities. Can human society ever be fully dominated? Or, is the act of rebellion against stagnating and oppressive systems a part of nature?  Is it possible that the more the elites wrap the world in a cage, the more they inspire unpredictable reactions that could undermine their authority?

This might explain the establishment’s constant attention to the idea of the “lone wolf” and the damage one person acting outside the dictates of the system can do. This is what the elites fear most: the possibility that despite all their efforts of surveillance and manipulation, individuals and groups may one day be struck by an unpredictable urge to pick up a rifle and put the the globalists out of everyone’s misery. No chatter, no electronic trail, no warning.

This is why they are destined to lose. They can never know all the unknowns. They can never control all the free radicals. There will always be rebellion. There will always be a liberty movement. The entirety of their utopian schematic revolves around the need to remove unknowns. They refuse to acknowledge that control at these levels is so frail it becomes useless and mortally dangerous. In their arrogance, they have ignored the warnings of the very sciences they worship and have set their eventual end in stone. While they may leave a considerable path of destruction in their wake, it is already written; they will not win.

In Defense of Laziness

Click through to read Charles Chu’s In Defense of Laziness.

He writes,

In a similar manner, von Hammerstein understood that the worst thing you can have is a hardworking idiot that goes around creating more work for everyone else.

This is the situation perpetrated on organisations around the world by the BSI/ISO mindset.

It carried over boot-camp standardisation from the Royal Navy to stamp out individuality in other spheres of enterprise.

ISO management standards train workers to think about how they can provide inspection-fodder for the assessors.  It distracts them from improving the flow of work for customers and from their own well-being.

The Classic Press-up – Boot Camp & Military Fitness Institute

Amway doesn’t have it so easy. It’s fairly simple for independent business operators to walk away when they see through the scam.

It’s not so straightforward for those whose employers love to collect certificates at other people’s expense.

ISO standards impose military discipline to little benefit except to the fee-gathering pyramid of the International Accreditation Forum’s inspection cartel.

Yeah, Why DID the IAF Hand Itself Over to China ...

The standards are loved by the hardworking idiots that don’t just ask, “how high?” but demand attention by showing how much higher they can jump.

General Von Hammerstein warned,

One must beware of anyone who is stupid and diligent — he must not be entrusted with any responsibility because he will always cause only mischief.

ISO quality standards are a mechanism for multiplying such people.

It’s better for a leader to be clever and lazy than clever and hard working.

UKAS always doubted the “confidence” it sells

BSI sells ISO standards like ISO 17025 and 15189, designed to be vague enough to sell to vast numbers of the gullible.

UKAS fills in the blanks, gratis, with documents like LAB 1.  These give the specifics in considerable detail.

UKAS’s sales pitch is “Delivering Confidence”.  However its LAB 1 shows it has no confidence in its accreditation product – it won’t take responsibility for tests and products produced under its accreditation.

lab1

No confidence there then.  No money-back guarantee.  It was “only a sampling exercise”, after all – worthless.

Such thinking goes back to the first edition of LAB 1 from 2004; it’s not just a response to the criminality that occurs widely despite accreditation and certification.

This is very wise and shows they never believed their sales pitch anyway.  Or at least that it would be hard to defend in court.

Oxebridge investigations report at least sixty companies involved in scandalous activities,

The FLIR case brings to sixty the number of companies listed by Oxebridge as holding ISO 9001 or AS9100 certificates while engaged in criminal activities, or being involved in scandals, product recalls, product-related injuries or deaths, or regulatory violations. Of those, 24 are traceable back to ANAB accredited certification bodies, with the rest being attributed to various other bodies such as UKAS (United Kingdom), DAkkS (Germany), JAB (Japan) and RvA (Netherlands).

Used to making their own laws, it will be interesting to see how governments and national courts deal with the devious activities of accreditation and certification bodies and their deviant clients.

UKAS now “a partner to Government”

In a BMTA interview with retired chief executive of UKAS, Paul Stennett MBE,
we learn,
UKAS and the Government are now able to use each other to avoid the parliamentary scrutiny that legislation ought to be subjected to.
ISOs are done in-house and the inspection cartel don’t answer questions.
They’re much more detailed and less reasonable than legislation.
ISOs are inspected rigorously at the expense of those accredited.  Who could pay for a police presence every time a crime is committed?
The enforcement of ISOs versus the law is horribly imbalanced.
We also learn that all pathology laboratories are now paying their dues to UKAS:
Are those diagnoses and treatments any better than in 2003?  Or has not-for-profit UKAS just won a big diversion of NHS money from its lobbying government?
But he’s not telling us how pathologists in Scotland have quickly found accreditation to be a waste of money and have told this to the Scottish Parliament.

Randox Testing Services blew the whistle on rogue employees -and on UKAS

Randox Testing Services (RTS) were hit by employees manipulating forensic results.  So far, it may affect 10,500 specimens.  It’s going to cost RTS £2.5M to retest specimens the police sent them.  That’s on top of what they paid to UKAS to provide accreditation “assuring” the quality of their services.  

Signs and Red Flags a Business Is an MLM Scam

A company like Randox might think of extending its own QC services to compete with the sham ISO 17025 scheme.  If only it could get past the other gang members in the ISO, IAF and co.  

RTS’s statement says,

“RTS are new to the forensic arena and in establishing their capability employed staff with employment history from other accredited laboratories, the Forensic Science Service and UKAS.  RTS complied fully with all UKAS accreditation requirements and in numerous inspections by UKAS, when it appears manipulation was underway, nothing untoward was found.”

What’s next?  Will the Fraud Squad being investigating UKAS for its part in an international Multi-Level Marketing scheme?

The UKAS logo is the product

Perhaps the police never heard the UKAS assessors assuring RTS that their inspection is only a sampling exercise and can’t assure anything they didn’t inspect.  

This is something the ISO should insist goes on every report form.  Right next to the logo UKAS want placed there as free advertising.  

Who’s promoting whom?

The logo is the product.
