Case Studies

Standards, certification, testing, inspection and accreditation (collectively known as the Quality Infrastructure) help businesses of all sizes and sectors to reduce costs, limit their environmental impacts, improve quality, access new market opportunities, and differentiate themselves from competitors.

Business Benefits showcases how accredited conformity assessment is used around the world by businesses to deliver positive benefits.

The site has been developed by organisations from across the conformity assessment community, including

  • BIPM
  • IAF
  • IEC
  • ILAC
  • ISO
  • ITC
  • ITU
  • OIML
  • World Bank Group
  • WTO
  • IIOC

To illustrate the value of the Quality Infrastructure and the services its organisations provide, this site includes:

  • Case studies
  • Research papers
  • Supporting materials that confirm these benefits for the business community

The examples published on the site cite tangible financial data to demonstrate the cost savings achieved through resource efficiency, meeting regulations at lower cost, the value of accessing new markets, and/or savings achieved through recognition from organisations such as insurers, regulators or purchasers.
