Cost: Free

Want to ensure your goods meet the standards of the countries you are exporting to? Join us to learn how accreditation can help!

What you’ll learn

  • How conformity assessment (e.g. testing, certification and inspection) is used
  • How accreditation can support your exports
  • Support available

We will explain how conformity assessment (e.g. testing, certification and inspection) is used, and how accreditation can boost confidence by providing reports and certificates that will support your exports.

We will also explore international infrastructure regarding conformity assessment and accreditation (including ISO, IAF and ILAC), and some of the terminology used. This will include clarification of misunderstandings that are commonly encountered, enabling exporters to have a better understanding of what is required of them.
