Event organized in the framework of the EU Twinning project (AZ 13 ENI TR 02 16 AZ/46) for the Republic of Azerbaijan.

In 2017, the Azerbaijan Accreditation Center was admitted to the associate membership of the European Accreditation Organization (EA).

The objective of the Twinning project is to contribute to the economic development of Azerbaijan through the accreditation system that meets the European requirements and the access of local products to the world market.

The issues such as improvement of the legislation in the field of accreditation, undertaking the institutional reforms, strengthening of the communication with international organizations, enhancing the skills of the personnel will be solved within the framework of this project.
The experts from the accreditation bodies in Germany, Italy and Latvia share their own experiences to enable the management and the staff of AZAK to do their job according to international and European requirements and to make the government and business in Azerbaijan aware of the importance of accreditation.

The purpose here is to ensure the availability of certification, recognized in foreign markets, for local products as well as for food products, through the international recognition of the conformity assessment system in Azerbaijan.

All of this is important for gaining a solid trust in front of foreign partners in implementing the scientific – technical cooperation and in the field of quality infrastructure of the Republic of Azerbaijan and for the local entrepreneurs to export their products without obstacle.

After the 4th quarter of the Twinning project, the objective of the Mid-term Conference is to present the project topics and progress to AZAK staff, ministries and authorities involved in the Government and in public agencies, stakeholders interested in accreditation, conformity assessment bodies, organizations (industry, trade, business, etc.) using accredited services, international representatives and the media.
