IAS Accreditation for Product Certification Agencies
  • Demonstrates compliance with ISO/IEC Standard 17065.
  • IAS accreditation is accepted by regulators and the marketplace across domestic and international borders.
  • Provides product manufacturers with verification that their products are tested, inspected, and certified to be safe and meet industry standards.
  • IAS offers prompt, personal service, including rapid scheduling of assessments to meet the needs of agencies.
  • Accreditation serves as an internationally recognized “stamp of approval” for industry and regulators.

Product Certification Agencies accredited by IAS benefit from IAS’s recognition as Multilateral Recognition Arrangement (MLA) signatory with the International Accreditation Forum (IAF) and the Asia Pacific Accreditation Cooperation (APAC).  Signatories are recognized worldwide based on the equivalency of their accreditation programs, therefore reducing costs and adding value to business and consumers.
