World Accreditation Day 2020

09 Jun 2020
9 June 2020 marks World Accreditation Day as a global initiative, jointly established by IAF and ILAC, to raise awareness of the importance of accreditation.

June 9th 2020 marks World Accreditation Day (#WAD2020), a global initiative established by ILAC and IAF to promote the value of accreditation.

This year’s theme focuses on how accreditation improves food safety, supporting the confidence of consumers, suppliers, purchasers, regulators and specifiers in the quality and safety of food.

Accreditation in food safety ensures 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), particularly Good Health and Well-being (SDG 3).

Visit Publicsectorassurance to access research, case studies and supporting information relating to the positive benefits of accreditation in the delivery of health and safety policy.

Visit Businessbenefits for further examples of how businesses can benefit from standards and accreditation.
