June 09, 2022 marks World Accreditation Day (#WAD2022), a global initiative established by IAF and ILAC to promote the value of accreditation.
This year’s theme is Accreditation: Sustainability in Economic Growth and the Environment.
This is a considerable shift to more sustainable forms of production that are less resource-intensive and more focused on climate mitigation and carbon removal alongside biodiversity protection policies are essential for long-term economic growth. Accreditation, alongside other quality infrastructure tools including metrology, standardization, conformity assessment and market surveillance, can support this shift.
By verifying compliance with standards, accreditation protects consumers and removes technical and economic barriers to trade, providing opportunities for products and services to go global.
