World Accreditation Day 2019

9 June 2019 marks World Accreditation Day as a global initiative, jointly established by the International Accreditation Forum (IAF) and the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC), to raise awareness of the importance of accreditation.

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 by providing widely accepted tools that help deliver value to supply chains.  A poster, and a brochure has also been produced to include examples from around the world to demonstrate how accreditation operates across all sector supply chains.  In addition, a video to further support campaigns for WAD2019 has been released and is available from the IAF/ILAC YouTube channel.

The Public Sector Assurance website, jointly created by global quality infrastructure organisations, contains further examples and research to demonstrate the value that accreditation plays in this sector. There are also some good examples on the Business Benefits site that can be used to support your activity.
