9 June 2021 is 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). The recording of the APAC online event to celebrate World Accreditation Day 2021 can be found on the APAC Knowledge Centre.

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.

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.
