Assessor Information

The Irish National Accreditation Board welcomes receipt of expressions of interest from experts seeking to provide contracted professional technical services to INAB in support of its accreditation programmes. The full range and scope of INAB activities is available here.

Current INAB Needs

Technical expertise demand varies from time to time but INAB would welcome contact from potential assessors or technical experts in the following sectors:

  • Food testing (chemical or biological), certification of food production schemes
  • Construction materials testing
  • Building air tightness/building air leakage permeability
  • Calibration (several different disciplines)
  • Medical testing across a wide range of disciplines, particularly from experts who are medically qualified

Expression of Interest

Candidate INAB Technical Experts/Technical Assessors

Candidates should ideally have a third level qualification and greater than 5 years’ experience working in the applicable sector, but the level of qualification depends on the sector in question. Formal assessor training and previous experience working with an accreditation body would be a distinct advantage, but is not an absolute requirement.

If interested, please email inab@inab.ie with "Assessor expression of interest" including the discipline, e.g. 'calibration,' 'testing,' 'certification,' etc. in the subject line.

A formal qualification procedure is in place and all applicants are evaluated against documented criteria and current demand.

Submission of an expression of interest is no guarantee of acceptance.  Nor does it create any contractual obligation.

Terms and Conditions

Please see the  terms and conditions for contracting INAB assessors and experts. These T&Cs are applicable to all assessors and are not negotiated further.
