What Is Accreditation?
Accreditation is the independent evaluation of conformity assessment bodies against recognised standards to ensure their impartiality and competence. Through the application of national and international standards, government, procurers and consumers can have confidence in the calibration and test results, inspection reports and certifications provided.
Accreditation bodies, which have been evaluated by peers as competent, sign arrangements that enhance the acceptance of products and services across national borders, thereby creating a framework to support international trade through the removal of technical barriers
About Joint Accreditation System of Australia and New Zealand (JAS-ANZ):
JAS-ANZ is the government-appointed accreditation body for Australia and New Zealand responsible for providing accreditation of conformity assessment bodies (CABs) in the fields of certification and inspection. Accreditation by JAS-ANZ demonstrates the competence and independence of these bodies such as IHFE Academy.
JAS-ANZ Secretariat is located both in Canberra, Australia and Wellington, New Zealand. It is the administrative arm of the Board and its operations are overseen by a Governing Board comprising of members appointed by the Australia and New Zealand Government. Its services are now available in over 20 countries.
JAS-ANZ only accredits organisations who provide certification and/ or inspection services.
IHFE’s scope of accreditation is published on the JAS-ANZ website and the accreditation entitles IHFE to use the JAS-ANZ Accreditation Symbol and IAF Mark for our certification services.
JAS-ANZ is an active member of the key accreditation organisations including the International Accreditation Forum (IAF), the Multilateral Cooperative Accreditation Arrangement (MCAA), the Pacific Accreditation Cooperation (PAC), and the Asia Pacific Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (APLAC).
A focus of these organisations are agreements, often referred to as Multilateral Recognition Agreements (MLAs) or multilateral Mutual Recognition Arrangement (MRAs), that signatories will recognise one another’s accredited certificates and inspection reports. The benefit of this recognition is that it reduces the potential for re-certification or re-inspection when products and services move from one country to another.
IAF- International Accreditation Forum
The International Accreditation Forum, Inc. (IAF) is the world association of Conformity Assessment Accreditation Bodies and other bodies interested in conformity assessment in the fields of management systems, products, services, personnel and other similar programmes of conformity assessment.
