WHAT ARE CERTIFICATIONS AND ACCREDITATIONS?

What is certification? It is the activity of determining in writing that any product, test, service, inspection, system, or employee is eligible as a third, independent, and impartial party, institution, or organization. This is the result of the evaluation conducted by a Conformity Assessment Organization, according to determined standard conditions, technical regulations, or criteria.

What is accreditation?It is a third-party accuracy statement which officially indicates that a Conformity Assessment Body is sufficient and competent to carry out conformity assessment activities according to national and international determined criteria.

For this purpose, it is a signed agreement in which the signatories of the Multilateral Agreement (MLA) recognize and acknowledge the equivalence of the accreditation systems operated by the signing members, as well as the reliability of the conformity assessment results (Documents) provided by Conformity Assessment Bodies. Accreditation Bodies created by signing members for example, In Germany, DAkkS, UKAS in the UK, Netherlands RVA, TURKAK etc. in Turkey.
