World Accreditation Day 2021

WAD 2021

NATA will celebrate World Accreditation Day (WAD) 2021 on Wednesday 9 June.

Each year we celebrate this global initiative to raise awareness of the importance and value of accreditation.

This year's theme is Accreditation: Supporting the Implementation of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for all people, the planet and prosperity.

It focuses on the UN’s Sustainable Development Agenda and promoting the many ways in which accreditation can help meet these goals and how accreditation may be applied to meet objectives such as increasing trade, addressing environment and health and safety concerns, and improving the general overall quality of output in an economy.

The Public Sector Assurance and Business Benefits websites, which contain case studies, research and supporting materials, demonstrate the benefits and value of accreditation. 

Watch the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC) and International Accreditation Federation (IAF) videos for more information.
