EA Report 2019
EA Report 2019 published
On July 6, 2020, the European co-operation for Accreditation (EA) published on its website the EA Annual Report 2019.
A new Framework Partnership Agreement (FPA) for the period from 2019-2022 was signed with the European Commission at the end of 2018 and the European Free Trade Association (EFTA) at the beginning of 2019, aiming to enhance the cooperation with EA and its member states, encourage the EU policy and legislation development as well as transparent and fair trade in the European market.
In May 2019, a new EA MLA was launched for reference materials producers, and at the end of 2019, there were 8 national accreditation bodies assessed which confirmed they have met all the relevant requirements.
The first EA Report on the functioning of accreditation in Europe, as requested by the European Commission, was published in October 2019. The aim was to show how accreditation in Europe is accepted and used by European and national regulators as well as owners and users of private schemes, as a preferable tool to show the competence of conformity assessment bodies and how stable the accreditation system is.
The EA Report 2019 summarizes all the activities of its members, recognized stakeholders and the EA Secretariat during 2019. You can view it at the following link: https://european-accreditation.org/ea-report-2019-has-just-been-released/
