You are Invited to a World Accreditation Day Celebration
Hosted by the International Accreditation Service
You are invited to celebrate World Accreditation Day with IAS online. This year’s theme is “How Accreditation Improves Food Safety.”
Accreditation has an important role in food safety, by ensuring competent and impartial inspection, certification and testing services in all parts of local, national and international food chains. In doing so, accreditation supports the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), in particular, the Good Health and Well-being Goal (SDG 3).
World Accreditation Day is a global initiative established by International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC) and International Accreditation Forum (IAF). We encourage our customers to support this important global goal of safe food for all.
