EMA Innovating in Accreditation for the Care of the Environment and Veterinary Medicine
Eco-Labeling Type III Accreditation Program
This year, the Mexican accreditation entity, a.c. (EMA) has launched an accreditation scheme to certify Environmental Product Declarations also known as Eco-labeling Type III. This document provides, in a transparent and verifiable way, information on the environmental performance of a product based on its Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) by an independent third party.
This scheme is especially important in the construction sector, since the demand for sustainable building certifications such as LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) has been increasing in recent years.
It is the first accreditation body in the Americas and sixth in the world to be published on the official website of the administrator of the program "The International EPD® System", which allows that all our clients accredited as Certification Bodies of Products in Eco-labeling Type III are recognized as the same internationally.
We invite you to consult our website for all the information related to the Accreditation Programs in the Environmental Sustainability Sector.

The objective of this accreditation service is to promote Good Veterinary Practices through an accredited voluntary scheme of certification, based on ISO 17065 and Guide to Good Veterinary Practices for Establishments of Companion Animals; the last one developed by Veterinarians from various institutions from Mexico. It also seeks to promote the integration of the veterinary sector.
