The ILAC MRA includes proficiency testing providers

The ILAC MRA, as announced last month, now includes the accreditation of proficiency testing providers (PTP) using ISO/IEC 17043.

Since announcing this extension last month and the recognition of the EA MLA to the ILAC MRA covering the accreditation of PTP, there are now 13 signatories to the ILAC MRA for the accreditation of PTP using ISO/IEC 17043 namely BELAC (Belgium), FINAS (Finland), CAI (Czech Republic), DANAK (Denmark), DAkkS (Germany), EGAC (Egypt), EYSD (Greece), ACCREDIA (Italy), RvA (The Netherlands), SNAS (Slovakia), ENAC (Spain), TURKAK (Turkey) and UKAS (United Kingdom). This represents more than 135 proficiency testing providers currently covered by the ILAC MRA.

The full list of signatories to the ILAC MRA is available from https://ilac.org/signatory-search/. This directory is searchable by economy and scope of signatory status as well as the name and acronym of the accreditation bodies that are signatories to the ILAC MRA. The scope of recognition of the recognised regions to the ILAC MRA is available from https://ilac.org/ilac-mra-and-signatories/recognised-regional-cooperation-bodies/. Information on the acceptance of calibration, testing (including medical) and inspection results and programs provided by PTPs via the ILAC MRA is available from https://ilac.org/ilac-mra-and-signatories/.
