The year-end meetings were held by the International Accreditation Forum (IAF) and the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC) in Montreal, Canada, between 6-15 November 2023. Representatives of national accreditation bodies attended the IAF-ILAC Committee and General Assembly meetings, which were held to carry out accreditation activities in a harmonious manner in the international arena, to inform all stakeholders of the developments and to exchange ideas on sector-related developments.

A memorandum of understanding was signed between the Turkish Accreditation Agency (TÜRKAK) and the National Accreditation Agency of Montenegro (ATCG) on 14 November 2023, aiming to improve cooperation by sharing knowledge and experience in the field of accreditation.

Thanks to the memorandum of understanding signed by TÜRKAK Secretary General Banu Müderrisoğlu and ATCG Director Anita Krulanovic, who were in Montreal, Canada for the General Assembly Meetings of the IAF and ILAC, cooperation between the parties in inspections and international issues is ensured. It is also aimed to develop international trade between the countries.

The activities of ATCG, which signed the EA (European Accreditation Association) MLA (Multilateral Recognition Agreement) in 5 areas in October 2023, thus gained international recognition.
