Accredia in numbers

Positive trend in 2021

Trust is growing amongst institutions, businesses and consumers in certifications, inspections, verifications, tests and calibrations carried out by accredited CABs.

The chief objectives of Accredia’s activities are to raise the awareness of businesses and consumers of the value of declarations of conformity, to broaden the synergy between the public and private sectors, to step up the competences and numbers of assessors for handling larger and more complex areas.
