Keep Updated

Saturday June 9th 2018 is World Accreditation Day (#WAD2018)

June 7, 2018

Accreditation delivers a safer world.

The expectation of safe workplaces, safe products, safe transport, safe food is universally shared. Statistics however show that the expectation is not being matched by the reality.

Closing this gap is a vital consideration for government, regulators and businesses, aiming to keep people safer in their work, their domestic life, their journeys and all other parts of their lives.

This year the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC) and the International Accreditation Forum (IAF) joint sponsors of #WAD2018 have focused on how accreditation delivers a safer world. 

The Chairs of both organisations have released a joint statement to introduce the importance of the theme and how accreditation can support  government, regulators and businesses, aiming to keep people safer in their work, their domestic life, their journeys and all other parts of their lives.

An informative brochure has also been produced to include examples from around the world to demonstrate how accredited testing, inspection and certification is being used to deliver a safer world.
