    World Accreditation Day 2016 - 9th June
    Accreditation as a global tool to support Public Policy is the theme for this year’s World Accreditation Day (WAD). KENAS held an informative breakfast session on 9th June 2016 at the Hotel Intercontinental. The Chief Guest speaker was Dr. Gitahi, the group CEO for Amref Health Africa. Other speakers were Eng. Wangai of National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) who stated that NTSA has taken great strides to embrace standards for motor vehicle inspection bodies and have also acknowledged that all motor vehicle inspection bodies must be accredited.
    This year’s theme focused on how accreditation can be a global tool to support public policy for all areas in the public sector – national and local government, regulators. To help explain the use of accredited conformity assessment, the Public Sector Assurance website www.publicsectorassurance.org has been established to showcase different global examples where accreditation has been used to support public policy efforts.
