Accreditation and industry certification activities

The current market issue

In today’s society it is often a requirement to state objectively conformity of products and services to specified requirements.

In the regulatory sector, government authorities implement laws covering the approval of products (including services) for reasons of safety, health, environmental protection, fraud prevention or market fairness.

In the voluntary sector, many lines of industry have, both within an economy as well as globally, set up systems for conformity assessment and approval, aiming at achieving a minimum technical level, enabling comparability, and also ensuring competition on equal terms.

Accreditation and certification schemes are created to objectively validate conformity.   This objective validation is conducted through conformity assessment activities that include certification, inspection, testing and calibrated systems.

It is extremely challenging establishing and operating effective and efficient accreditation and certification systems.  To ensure the systems are recognised and have the required transparency, rigor and authority international protocols must be followed.  The additional benefit in using these protocols is that schemes can be internationally aligned and recognised, promoting better trade.
