World Accreditation Day 2021 - 9 June 2021
09 June 2021 marks the World Accreditation Day, a global initiative established by IAF and ILAC to promote the value of accreditation. This year’s theme is Accreditation: Supporting the Implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). You can find a joint statement by the IAF and ILAC Chairs, a brochure and a poster now available for download on the IAF website here and the ILAC website here.
SDGs are at the core of the United Nations' 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, a broad and ambitious plan of action with the overarching objective of leaving no one behind. Accreditation, in collaboration with other quality infrastructure institutions, provides the technical foundations that are critical to the functioning of developed and developing societies. It enables industrial development, trade competitiveness in global markets, efficient use of natural and human resources, food safety, and health and environmental protection.
In addition, three videos with the themes of People, Planet and Prosperity will be released on the IAF-ILAC Youtube channel in mid-May.
We will make sure to keep you informed about the latest developments related to World Accreditation Day 2021.
