World Accreditation Day is here! 9 June

The global economy is actively addressing the challenges posed by inflation, low growth prospects, economic fluctuations, trade disruptions, and accelerating climate change.

Simultaneously, advancements in technology and evolving consumer behaviours are driving transformative changes in markets. This year’s World Accreditation Day theme, ‘Accreditation: Empowering Tomorrow and Shaping the Future’, reflects this global outlook. It demonstrates a global perspective, emphasizing the positive influence accreditation can have on challenges and opportunities, including digitalization, new technologies, and sustainability across various aspects of life.

Accreditation has been an important foundation for societal confidence for many years. It originated in metrology and calibration, establishing trust in the accuracy and traceability of measurements, and expanded to testing services to safeguard consumers and government revenues.

Today, accreditation supports trust in nearly every facet of daily life. On June 9th every year, we strive to emphasize the significance of Accreditation and its influence.
