The Emerging International Framework for Accreditation

By David H. Stanger on December 4, 2002
There is a significant amount of international effort being put into the development of an international framework for the mutual recognition of conformity assessments. Recognizing the importance of this to the research undertaken under this project, IISD commissioned this paper by David Stanger, which outlines the latest international developments in private conformity assessment services. Stanger is Director General of the International Union of Independent Laboratories, and participates actively on the Joint Committee for Closer Cooperation (JCCC) between the International Accreditation Forum (IAF) and the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC).
