World Accreditation Day


WAD 2021 will highlight how accreditation and accredited conformity assessment activities support the implementation of the SDGs, a series of 17 goals adopted by United Nations member states as part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.



Since 2008, World Accreditation Day (WAD) takes place annually on June 9th.  This day is used to promote accreditation and each year concentrates on a specific theme, which highlights the benefits and importance of accreditation in that sector e.g Food, Supply chain, health etc.

It enables INAB as a member of the International Accreditation Forum, the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation and all members and stakeholders in the conformity assessment community acknowledge and promote the benefits and value of accreditation.
