A New Associate Member in EA

In November 2016, the European Accreditation (EA) General Assembly endorsed the recommendation made by the Executive Committee that ARMNAB, the national accreditation body of Armenia, become an Associate Member of EA effective 24 November 2016.

ARMNAB had applied for the Associate Membership status in July 2016. After it was subject to a full administrative check by the EA Executive Secretary, the new application was carefully examined by the EA Multilateral Agreement Council which, at its last meeting in October, recommended ARMNAB’s acceptance as an EA Associate Member.

This new Associate Member makes EA gather now 13 Associate Members, i.e. accreditation bodies located in countries listed as potential candidate members to the European Union (EU) or covered by the EU Neighbourhood Policy.

On behalf of Nune Mkrtchyan, the ARMNAB Director General, Mrs. Nazik Abgaryan (right), signed the EA Associate Membership agreement with Thomas Facklam, the EA Chairman.
