IOAS attend 2023 IAF-ILAC Joint Annual Meetings

IOAS (a signatory of the IAF MLA for the main scope ISO/IEC 17065) is currently attending the 2023 IAF-ILAC Joint Annual Meetings being held from 06-15 November in Montreal, Canada. The International Accreditation Forum (IAF)  was established with a mission: to support harmonization of accreditation requirements, programs and procedures worldwide; establish multilateral recognition arrangements (MLAs) among members to confirm consistent application of those requirements; support emerging accreditation bodies; and promote its MLAs globally.

IAF’s collaboration with ILAC to establish a single international organization for accreditation marks a significant development in IAF’s evolution. IAF envisions a new body that will promote global trade facilitation, enhance market acceptance, and add value to all stakeholders as accreditation remains a cornerstone of a connected and thriving world economy.
