Databanks

Accredia’s online Databanks are the official source for finding the references of Conformity Assessment Bodies operating in all the schemes and sectors managed by Accredia, and to verify the validity of certificates of accreditation and the content of accredited test lists.

The section also contains accessible data of organizations/companies holding the main types of certification (management systems, products and services) and professionals, handled directly by Accredia or in association with other institutional sources.

Accessible databases and statistics from the Databanks section are part of an ongoing process of market support which sees accreditation as a tool of guarantee of the competence of CABs undertaking conformity assessment activities of products and services.

The aim is to offer a complete and reliable information service of transparent communication for accredited CABs, accreditation bodies, national and international institutions, businesses and consumers which use accredited services.

The use of Databanks is subject to legal conditions which are accessible from any page of the website.
