The issues of quality management and ensuring compliance with the requirements of the certification body conducting conformity assessment and quality control of metamaterials. The variety of metamaterials determines a large number of technologies of their production. For many metamaterials it is necessary to carry out not only tests, but also the control of processes providing technology check and modeling of technological operations. When checking the actual execution of the technological process, the possibility of traceability of products from metamaterials throughout the technological cycle is estimated. Cross-checked against the recording required data such as the card heats of registration of the passport. Technological operations are modeled and their metrological support is evaluated. In the formed database of technological parameters of production identification and traceability of suppliers of melting and casting units, furnaces for homogenization, the deforming equipment, furnaces for heat treatment in relation to production of each concrete metamaterial shall be provided. For example, the execution of works on assessment of technologies for the manufacturing of composites with the certification of their production shows areas where necessarily require the particular attention of experts. For a representative sample, including 53 parties submitted the map middle and map scale. On the example of the coincidence of activities of a legal entity and a certification body accredited and operating on the basis of the University, the conditions of compliance with the law of conformity assessment of metamaterials, as well as products and products from them are shown. It is shown that the data and the results of its evaluation of the quality of the metamaterial and stability of the technological process should be analysed and checked by the members of the Commission with regard to mandatory corporate culture employees. Recommendations for procedural support and actions to confirm compliance are given.

The authors Express their gratitude to the staff and management of the Testing laboratory “Tekhpolikom” and NPF “Tekhpolikom” and a special tribute to the Winner of the State prize of Russia in science and technology L. I. Anikhovskaya for qualified help and professional advice.
