Recognition of APLAC Cont.

Following the recent ILAC Arrangement Council ballot, the continuation of recognition for the Asia Pacific Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (APLAC) as a Recognised Regional Cooperation of ILAC, has been confirmed.  The recommendation endorsed by the Arrangement Council members is noted below:

“The ILAC AMC recommends that the recognition of the APLAC MRA should be continued for the accreditation of calibration and testing laboratories using ISO/IEC 17025, medical testing laboratories using ISO 15189 and inspection bodies using ISO/IEC 17020.  It is recommended that the next re-evaluation of APLAC be carried out following the standard 4 year period, that is by June 2017.”
