World Accreditation Day

It's the special time of the year again for the Accreditation Community all around the world.

Every 9th of June annually, accreditation community around the world celebrates this day to promote the value of accreditation in our everyday life. This year's WAD theme is something that every Malaysians can relate to; Food Safety.

#WAD2020 highlights the role of accreditation in improving food safety. We are proud that our accredited conformity assessment bodies play vital roles in ensuring the food that we consume is safe. From farm to fork, accredited conformity assessment activities such as testing, inspection and certification ensures the consumer an access to safe and nutritious food. Accreditation also supports the regulatory framework under Ministry of Health in ensuring the food quality and safety.
