Accreditation is a quality infrastructure established to support the reliability and validity of the studies carried out by conformity assessment bodies and therefore the conformity confirmation documents (test and inspection reports, calibration certificates, management system documents, product certification documents, personnel certification documents, etc.)
The accreditation of conformity assessment bodies is based on the international standards that determine the qualification criteria for the relevant conformity assessment bodies, the relevant sector-specific requirements and the requirements determined in the guidebooks by the regional or international accreditation organizations and accepted worldwide.
A product or service with a conformity confirmation certificate issued by an accredited conformity assessment body inspires confidence that it meets the applicable requirements for that product or service. With the systematic, accreditation contributes to the removal of technical barriers to trade.
At the point of global acceptance of accredited services, questions arise about the reliability of the accreditation service itself. The trust mechanism between accreditation organizations is established by the multilateral / mutual recognition agreements made with international or regional organizations such as IAF (International Accreditation Forum), ILAC (International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation), EA (European Accreditation Association) etc.
Our Institution, which started to provide accreditation services in 2001; is a full member of thethe European co-operation for Accreditation (EA), the International Accreditation Forum (IAF) and the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC). As of 2008, it has signed a multilateral / mutual recognition agreement with the European Accreditation Association (EA), the International Accreditation Forum (IAF) and the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC) in all accreditation areas subject to mutual recognition agreements.
