WSC Workshop on Conformity Assessment

IAF presented at a workshop organised jointly by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), and International Telecommunication Union (ITU) in December. Under the banner of the World Standards Cooperation (WSC), established in 2001 as a high-level group focusing on the common interests of the three world-wide international standards development organisations, the workshop was attended by manufacturers, regulators, and transition economy leaders.  

The aims of the workshop included:

  • To help find solutions to existing conformity assessment (CA) issues;
  • To bring together and share different national situations, experience, issues & solutions;
  • To build awareness of the value & benefits of global CA; and
  • To help solve the issues of product safety, performance, energy efficiency, fake & counterfeit products.
