During the past week, the Accreditation Body of Montenegro (ATCG) organized a ceremony to mark the achievement of the signatory status of the Multilateral Agreement Council (EA MLA) at the Hilton Hotel in Podgorica. Representatives of ATS had the honor to attend this exceptional event alongside numerous dignitaries from the world of accreditation and quality infrastructure.
The EA MLA Agreement is an official recognition that the accreditation system in Montenegro is equivalent to the accreditation systems established in European Union member countries.
"This agreement is not just a formality. It represents a strong link between our accreditation bodies and all accreditation bodies signatories to this agreement, confirming our commitment to a common goal - improving the quality and safety of products and services. The implementation of standards may seem insignificant in our daily lives at first. Still, it has an impact on the safety of the facilities we live and work in, the healthcare we receive, the quality of the air we breathe, and the production of food, textiles, and electronic devices, in short, practically all products, processes, and services we receive," stated Mr. Dragan Pusara, the director of the Accreditation Body of Serbia, addressing all attendees on behalf of the directors of accreditation bodies in the region.
