PCA - World Accreditation Day
More than 200 participants gathered for the main event organized in one of the Warsaw theatres, including present and former PCA employees, assessors and guests representing the bodies engaged in the conformity assessment system, such as the chief inspectorates: sanitary, environmental protection, veterinary and commercial quality of agriculture and food products, the Office of Competition and Consumer Protection, Polish Committee for Standardization and the Central Office of Measures. The special guest was Mr Waldemar Pawlak, Deputy Prime Minister and the Minister of Economy, who focused in his address on the enormous significance of accreditation in free trade of products and services on the European and international markets – a condition for an undisturbed economic development in Poland, Europe and the world.
Dr E W Roguski, PCA Director, emphasized that as regards to the number of accredited organizations, the Polish Centre for Accreditation was among the leading accreditation bodies in the European Union. He marked that the success was mainly due to the changes made to the PCA management system and appropriate work relations among the older and newly employed personnel.
He also thanked everyone for the congratulations and wishes received from all around Poland and abroad on the occasion of the PCA anniversary.
The celebrations of the World Accreditation Day were the best opportunity to premiere - for such a demanding audience of professionals who attended the gala -
a 6-minute film promoting the conformity assessment system, which had been produced on request of Polish Centre for Accreditation. Some excerpts of the film were used in the reportage transmitted in the main news broadcast of Polish Television (the film is available on the PCA website: www.pca.gov.pl).
