The Accreditation Body of Serbia started a promotional campaign which will cover all regions in the Republic of Serbia and will aim at promoting the role and importance of accreditation for the economic development of our country, and at establishing confidence in the product and service market, and in health protection and safety, consumer protection, environmental protection and other spheres of public interest.
The first of the forthcoming campaign events will be organised on 29th June 2015 on the occasion of the celebration of the Accreditation Day in the Republic of Serbia and 15 years from the award of the first accreditation certificate in cooperation with the Serbian Chamber of Commerce (Association of Accredited Conformity Assessment Bodies, PKS). Given that the first accreditation certificate was awarded in 2000 to Akcionarsko društvo za ispitivanje kvaliteta “Kvalitet” from Niš, the celebration and round-table discussion on the subject of: “The Role and importance of accreditation for economic development” will be held at the RPK Niš premises.
The participants will be introduced, in the introductory part, to the operation, structure and status of ATS in the Republic of Serbia, Europe and world. The Director of the Akcionarsko društvo za ispitivanje kvaliteta “Kvalitet”, Mr Vladimir Vukašinović, will address the delegates and explain how accreditation enabled this company to develop and take a leading the position on the market.
Moreover, a round-table discussion will be held after the introductory presentations and it is intended for the business community and conformity assessment bodies from the RPK Niš territory that will be introduced to the role and importance of accreditation to the economic development and upgrade of the business potential. During the round-table discussion the delagtes will have an opportunity to put the question to the ATS representatives about the topics which could be useful for their future business opportunities on the market.
