Benefits of Inspection Body Accreditation

Inspection Bodies that obtain accreditation must demonstrate a certain level of technical competence to the accrediting body, that it is capable of performing specific types of inspection activities and produce accurate results.  The use of accredited inspection bodies facilitate trade and economic growth as the accreditation process relies on a uniformed approach to confirm the Inspection Body’s competence, an approach that is widely accepted across the globe. When an inspection body is accredited it:

  • Is able to provide its customers with an independent proof that is based on internationally recognized standards,
  • Increases confidence in inspection related information that is used to support policy decisions and actions plan
  • Generates a report that can facilitate acceptance of goods between economies and eliminates the need to repeat inspection
  • reduces uncertainties associated with the decisions that affect the protection of human health and environment
  • Increases public confidence
  • Improves the efficiency of the assessment process by eliminating duplicate inspections
  • Facilitates trade and economic growth
