World Accreditation Day 2017 will be celebrated on 9 June.
It is a global initiative, jointly established by the International Accreditation Forum (IAF) and the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC), to raise awareness of the importance of accreditation.
This year’s theme focuses on delivering confidence in construction and the built environment.
To help explain the use of accredited conformity assessment, the Public Sector Assurance website www.publicsectorassurance.org has been established to showcase different global examples where accreditation has been used to support construction and the built environment.
The aim is to raise awareness and communicate the value of accreditation to those working in the construction and built environment sector including building owners, operators, contractors, manufacturers, designers, architects, and structural and civil engineers.
It also demonstrates how accreditation is used by policy makers, local authorities and regulators to support construction-based regulation, environmental protection, public safety, fraud prevention, public trust and innovation.
The World Accreditation Day 2017 brochure is available to view on the button below.
For all our clients that fall within this sector, the IAF /ILAC brochure and information on the Public Sector Assurance website is a valuable resource with specific examples of how accreditation can add value to your workplace.
