TURKAK’s EA MLA agreement was renewed and scope extension decision taken

TÜRKAK, a member of the European Accreditation (EA) and MLA (Multilateral Recognition Agreement), concluded a peer evaluation audit in 2016 aimed at maintaining the current MLA coverage. In addition, according to the newly added ISO / IEC 17043 under the Multilateral Recognition Agreement (MLA), the application for "Accreditation of Proficiency Testing (PT) Providers" was evaluated. The decision taken by the Multilateral Recognition Council (MAC) on April 27, 2017 stipulates that "EA MAC, TÜRKAK maintains MLA (Multilateral Recognition Agreement) in areas such as calibration, experimentation, medical experimentation, inspection, product documentation, management systems certification and personnel certification. In accordance with ISO / IEC 17043, to be included in the scope of MLA in the field of Proficiency Tester and to approve the next peer evaluation visit (in the direction of normal planning) 4 years later ".

With this decision, TÜRKAK has ensured that the current MLA (Multilateral Recognition Agreement) agreement is maintained without any conditions and that the ISO / IEC 17043 Proficiency Test field is included in the MLA (Multilateral Recognition Agreement) at the same time as the leading European Union countries. From now on, the reports prepared by our conformity assessment bodies which are accredited by TURKAK in the field of Proficiency Test will have international recognition within the scope of EA multilateral recognition agreement.

We would like to thank all of our stakeholders, including our conformity assessment bodies especially where witness audits are conducted.
