9 June 2021 marks World Accreditation Day (#WAD2021), a global initiative established by IAF and ILAC to promote the value of accreditation. This year’s theme is Accreditation: Supporting the Implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

A joint statement by the IAF and ILAC Chairs, a brochure and a poster are now available for download on the IAF website here and the ILAC website here.

IAF and ILAC will also be releasing three videos with the themes of people, planet and prosperity by 15 May.

In addition, the Public Sector Assurance and Business Benefits websites, which contain case studies, research and supporting materials demonstrating the benefits and value of accreditation, now feature an option for searching by SDG. We encourage members to visit these websites for additional materials to support their WAD activities.
