JANAAC as a National Accreditation Body is responsible for:
Accreditation increases the confidence that international consumers and their regulatory agencies have in the goods and services provided by your business, as it tells the world that your business is technically competent and meets all the requirements of an international standard.
Therefore, businesses that are accredited will not only meet regulatory requirements but also have a marketing edge.
For some markets there are mandatory accreditation requirements.
For example, in the USA, there has been recent legislature enacted [September 2008], which requires that some children’s products entering the US market, be tested by an accredited laboratory.
JANAAC charges a fee to process application forms submitted and cover other expenses incurred during the accreditation process. Please contact our offices for further information.
Presently accreditation is being offered as a voluntary service.
However, nationally and internationally, legislature is increasingly being developed that makes it mandatory to use accredited facilities.
Our publication entitled “Steps Toward Becoming an Accredited Laboratory” and our “Accreditation Process Flowchart”, outline the steps toward getting your business accredited. For further information and a consultation on how accreditation can benefit your business, please contact JANAAC via telephone at  968-7799/920- 4558.
