Accreditation is formal and independent verification that a program or organization meets established quality standards and is competent to perform certain conformity assessment tasks. Conformity assessment tasks may include, but are not limited to, testing, inspection or certification.
For this purpose, there are accreditation bodies identified by countries and mutually recognized within the framework of bilateral agreements. Such bodies may be listed as: IAS in the USA, JAZ-ANZ in Australia, DAR (TgA) in Germany, UKAS in the UK, RvA in the Netherlands, etc. The main purpose of these bodies is to assess the organizations that apply to them for the scope requested and assess whether they provide this service in accordance with the relevant international standard. If the results of these assessments are appropriate, it is registered that the company offering the said service provides this service in accordance with the international rules.
