Engaging with UNECE
The International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC) and IAF jointly presented the value of accreditation and the Arrangements at the twenty-fifth session of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) Working Party on Regulatory Cooperation and Standardization Policies (WP.6).
The UNECE Working Party on Regulatory Cooperation and Standardization Policies works to lower costs, facilitate trade, and improve access to critical technologies, while protecting the health and safety of consumers and workers, and preserving our natural environment. To achieve this goal, the Working Party develops common regulatory frameworks in specific sectors.
ILAC and IAF were able to provide delegates with an update in the coverage of the Arrangements in terms of scope and geography, as well as highlight examples of good regulatory practice through the use of accredited conformity assessment.
