Emanuele Riva, Vice General Director and Director of the Certification and Inspection Department, participates as a speaker at the event organized as part of the Global Quality Infrastructure Index (GQII) Program. The GQII program is an initiative of independent consultancy firms Mesopartner and Analytar to research and disseminate data on Quality Infrastructure.
Cross-frontier accreditation data collected in the publication “Cross-frontier accreditation. GQII Data & Analytics paper No. 2” will be presented at the event. The data analysis shows different patterns of cross-border accreditation. The authors of the publication collected data from 201 accreditation bodies in 184 economies. The results of this study provide the basis for expert debate on the advantages and limitations of cross-border accreditation.
