» ILAC – IAF Partnership


ILAC and the International Accreditation Forum (IAF) have been co-operating since 2001 to achieve improved alignment of their work programmes as this contributes to the effectiveness and efficiency of both organisations, their mutual members and delivery of value to their stakeholders.

This is an effective and well established partnership that now includes joint meetings and work items at the management as well as the MRA/MLA levels. Examples of joint IAF/ILAC activities include the implementation of a biannual concurrent joint meeting schedule, publication of joint documents for example to cover the peer evaluation process, joint peer evaluations, combined representation and presentation with other key international organisations in the quality infrastructure framework and the publication of joint brochures and documents promoting accreditation and the benefits for trade, regulators and consumers.

World Accreditation Day, held on the 9th of June each year, is a further example of a successful joint initiative between IAF and ILAC.
