1. World Accreditation Day 2017: June 9th, 2018
This year’s World Accreditation Day theme is “Accreditation: Delivering a Safer World”. The expectation of safe workplaces, safe products, safe transport, safe food, in fact, all aspects of our lives is universally shared. Statistics, however, show that the expectation is not being matched by the reality. Closing this gap is a vital consideration for government, regulators, and businesses, aiming to keep people safer in their work, their domestic life, their journeys and all other parts of their lives.
The Chairs of both ILAC and IAF have released a joint statement to introduce the importance of the theme and how accreditation can support government, regulators, and businesses, aiming to keep people safer in their work, their domestic life, their journeys and all other parts of their lives. A brochure has also been produced to include examples from around the world to demonstrate how accredited testing, inspection, and certification is being used to deliver a safer world.
