World Accreditation Day 2020 -SADCAS Press Release
Accreditation: Improving food safety is the theme for 2020 World Accreditation Day which will be celebrated worldwide on 9 June 2020. This theme highlights the role of accreditation in improving food safety. Accreditation has a crystal-clear objective: it aims to assure businesses, end users and regulators that a conformity assessment body (CAB), such as a testing, calibration or medical laboratory, certification or inspection body, has the required technical competence and operates impartially. This competence is assessed by accreditation bodies against international standards and requirements.
