Why Accreditation Matters?

Accreditation is a tool for providing for the acceptance and recognition of conformity assessment results.  Accreditation is now increasingly accepted worldwide as the most transparent and non-discriminatory mechanism to assure competency of conformity assessment service providers both in the voluntary and regulatory areas.

  • To industry and trade accreditation facilitates trade and eliminates the need for repetitive testing, certification and inspection.
  • To regulators accreditation provides reliable and impartial basis for sound decision-making.
  • To conformity assessment service providers [testing/calibration laboratories, certification bodies (management systems/product/personnel) and inspection bodies], accreditation is a means of demonstrating your competency to your clients.
  • To users of accredited services and consumers at large, accreditation is your guarantee for reliable and comparable conformity assessment results.  Accreditation increases reliability of products.
