About accreditation

Accreditation is a means of assessing, in the public interest, the technical competence and integrity of conformity assessment bodies.

Accreditation is a means of assessing, in the public interest, the technical competence and integrity of conformity assessment bodies.

Accreditation, with its many potential benefits for the quality of goods and in the provision of services throughout the supply chain, is underpinning practical applications of an increasingly wide range of activities across all sectors of the economy, from fishing to forestry, construction to communications.

The independent assessment of accredited organisations ensures that businesses and consumers can make a confident and informed choice about the products and services delivered to the marketplace from these companies.
