The International Accreditation Forum (IAF) and the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC) have designated June 9 as World Accreditation Day. Celebrated annually, this event is intended to raise awareness around the globe of the importance of accreditation-related activities. This year’s theme focuses on how accreditation improves food safety, supporting the confidence of consumers, suppliers, purchasers, regulators and specifiers in the quality and safety of food.
While the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting social distancing policies may disrupt physical WAD events, we encourage you to celebrate with us online using the hashtag #WAD2020.
