Since 2008, World Accreditation Day (WAD) takes place annually on June 9th. This day is used to promote accreditation and each year concentrates on a specific theme, which highlights the benefits and importance of accreditation in that sector e.g Food, Supply chain, health etc.
It enables INAB as a member of the International Accreditation Forum, the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation and all members and stakeholders in the conformity assessment community acknowledge and promote the benefits and value of accreditation.
