World Accreditation Day 2024

08 Jun 2024
June 9th 2024 marks World Accreditation Day, a global initiative established by ILAC and IAF to promote the value of accreditation.

World Accreditation Day is the global initiative established by IAF and ILAC, to enhance and disseminate knowledge of certifications, inspections, tests and calibrations carried out under accreditation.

This year’s WAD theme, Accreditation: Empowering Tomorrow and Shaping the Future, highlights the role that accreditation can play in shaping various aspects of life, from technology to transportation, sustainability to security, and inclusivity to innovation, as digitalization, new technologies and growing sustainability concerns continue to change our world.

This theme relates to many of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), in particular:

  • 2. Zero hunger
  • 6. Clean water and sanitation
  • 7. Affordable and clean energy
  • 9. Industry, innovation and Infrastructure
  • 11. Sustainable cities and communities
  • 16. Peace, justice and strong institutions
  • 17. Partnership for the goals
