» EA – Continuation as a recognised regional cooperation body of ILAC has been confirmed


As a result of the recent ILAC Arrangement Council ballot, the continuation of the recognition for the European co-operation for Accreditation (EA) as a recognised regional cooperation body of ILAC has been confirmed. The endorsed AMC recommendation is shown below:

 

The ILAC AMC recommends that the scope of recognition of the EA MLA to the ILAC MRA be:

 

  • continued for the accreditation of calibration and testing laboratories using ISO/IEC 17025, medical testing laboratories using ISO 15189, inspection bodies using ISO/IEC 17020, proficiency testing providers using ISO/IEC 17043 and reference material producers using ISO 17034.

 

It is recommended that the next re-evaluation of EA is scheduled to begin no later than July 2026.

 

Information on the recognised regions including EA to the ILAC MRA is available from https://ilac.org/ilac-mra-and-signatories/recognised-regional-cooperation-bodies/

 

We look forward to continuing to work with our colleagues from EA.
