The theme for this year’s World Accreditation Day focuses on how accreditation adds value to supply chains and procurement activities.
Taking place on 9th June 2019, the day has become an important fixture in the calendar to promote the value of accreditation, accredited conformity assessment and standards.
At 4ward Testing, we strongly support World Accreditation Day which encourages confidence in a product’s performance following testing to national and international Standards. It highlights and endorses assurances and conformity of manufacture and production.
As with previous years, the day will be celebrated across the world with the hosting of major national events, seminars, press and media coverage. This provides the opportunity to explore how accreditation can help deliver a safer world and to support businesses, government and regulators.
A joint statement released by the Chair of the International Accreditation Forum (IAF), Xiao Jianhua, and the Chair of the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC), Etty Feller, re-enforces the importance of accreditation.
