Theme for World Accreditation Day 2018 unveiled
The International Accreditation Forum (IAF) and International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC) have announced that the theme of World Accreditation Day 2018 will be how accreditation delivers a safer world.
World Accreditation Day, a global initiative jointly established by IAF and ILAC to promote the value of accreditation, has been held every June 9 since 2008.
Hundreds of IAF and ILAC members will celebrate world accreditation day by organizing a series of commemorative activities including major national events, seminars, and media events, to communicate the value of accreditation.
In China, the General Administration of Quality Supervision (AQSIQ) will also host themed activities which will be closely combined with quality practice and will involve the participation of various sectors of society.
The activities will be designed to demonstrate how accreditation is used by policy makers, local authorities and regulators to support construction-based regulation, environmental protection, public safety, fraud prevention, public trust and innovation.
