A draft United Nations CEFACT White Paper has just been released which addresses the exchange of product conformity certificates in a digital context.
This has relevance for both testing laboratories and certification bodies around the world and it also represents a contribution to ongoing global discussions on the future of digital trade.
There were a number of Australian contributors to this work, including Brett Hyland of NATA, ensuring that the Australian perspective was represented.
“It is hoped this draft White Paper will help generate much-needed global dialogue on conformity data exchange, reflecting the importance of conformity assessment in international trade,” said Brett.
The White Paper is currently open for Public Review and is available here
Public comment will be accepted until 31 March 2023.
