"As a national accreditation body, we provide credible accreditation services to laboratories, inspection & certification bodies for greater market access and global recognition for technical competence and quality assurance"
The Standards Malaysia accreditation system is in accordance to the international standard ISO/IEC 17011 to ensure that the accreditation services provided are impartial, non-discriminatory and credible. The Standards Malaysia accreditation system is ensured to be fair and impartial through 3 operational levels i.e. strategy and policy, decision and assessments.
The Standards Malaysia Accreditation services are suitable for the following types of organisation:
- Testing & Calibration Laboratories
- Medical Testing Laboratories
- Certification Bodies
- Inspection Bodies
- Proficiency testing providers

The primary objective of accreditation services is to provide a credible accreditation service to testing and calibration laboratories including medical testing laboratories such that ultimately SAMM endorsed test reports and calibration certificates are accepted internationally. The accepted mechanism for recognition is by means of the Mutual Recognition Arrangements framework of the International Laboratory Accreditation Co-operation (ILAC) and Asia Pacific Accreditation Cooperation (APAC).
