As a result of the recent ILAC Arrangement Council ballot, the continuation of the recognition for the Inter American Accreditation Cooperation (IAAC) 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 IAAC 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 IAAC is scheduled to begin no later than September 2025.


Information on the recognised regions including IAAC 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 IAAC.
