World Accreditation Day

June 9th 2014 marks the annual World Accreditation Day. WAD is a global initiative jointly established by the International Accreditation Forum (IAF) and International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC) to raise awareness of the importance of accreditation-related activities including (but not limited to) accreditation to ISO 9001, ISO 18001 and ISO 14001.

This year will focus on the role accreditation plays in providing confidence in the provision of energy.

World Accreditation Day will be celebrated across the world with the hosting of major national events, seminars, and press and media coverage, to communicate the value of accreditation to Government, Regulators and the leaders of the business community.

I will update this blog when information is available from JAS-ANZ for Australian / New Zealand events. In the mean time here is great a video on the benefits of accreditation:
