On that occasion, Mr. Janićijević said that the most important goal - the imperative of ATS - is to maintain an established and efficient accreditation system, which will enable the successful performance of the competencies of the national accreditation body. Acting Director also pointed out that ATS is able to meet the needs for accreditation of the economy in Serbia, and constantly improve the accreditation system, and successfully maintain signed multilateral agreements, within the framework of international accreditation organisations. He proudly emphasised that the quality and continuous work of the ATS and the signed EA MLA are essential preconditions for the quality infrastructure in the Republic of Serbia to be competitive and ready for partnership with the quality infrastructure institutions of the European Union and at the international level.
At the end of his address to the audience, Prof. Janićijević, PhD expressed special thanks for the fact that the lawmakers in some line ministries in Serbia understood the significance and value of accreditation and for increased referral to accreditation as the best way to evaluate the fulfillment of the prescribed requirements, and thus increased reliance on the services of accredited bodies.
The participants were also addressed by Mr. Željko Medak, Director of the Institute for Accreditation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Jovan Petrović, Assistant Minister and Director, and Miloš Jelić, President of the Accreditation Council.
