EA published the new brochure

Current events


EA published a new brochure aiming at demonstrating how accreditation supports regulators in ensuring competence and enhancing confidence in the market. An ad hoc task force group of the EA Communications and Publications Committee (CPC) produced the new brochure.

The brochure promotes the added value of accreditation among national regulators. The objectives were to prove how accreditation should be seen as a service for the European and international Community demonstrating compliance with specified requirements for competence, independence and impartiality in
conformity assessment.

The brochure puts an emphasis on the international agreements that allow the European and global recognition of reports and certificates issued by accredited conformity assessment bodies through the signatory status of national accreditation bodies to the EA Multilateral Agreement (MLA) and the ILAC/IAF MRA/MLA.

Finally it is explained how advantages for regulators and governments result in benefits for businesses across all sectors by boosting efficiency, reducing controls and supporting export, as well as for consumers by protecting their interests in various areas (health, food, environment, etc.) and creating trust.
