World Accreditation Day 2019



How accreditation adds value to supply chains 

June 9th 2019 marks World Accreditation Day (#WAD2019), a global initiative established by ILAC and IAF to promote the value of accreditation. 

This year’s theme focuses on how accreditation adds value to supply chains. 

 World Accreditation Day 2019

The Chairs of both organisations have released a joint statement to introduce the importance of the th  eme and how accreditation can support government, regulators and businesses by providing widely accepted tools that help deliver value to supply chains.  A brochure has also been produced to include examples from around the world to demonstrate how accreditation operates across all sector supply chains. 

The Public Sector Assurance website, jointly created by global quality infrastructure organisations, contains further examples and research to demonstrate the value that accreditation plays in this sector. There are also some good examples on the Business Benefits site that can be used to support your activity.   

In addition, a video to further support your campaigns for WAD2019 has been released and is available from the IAF/ILAC YouTube channel.
