During the 19th IAF-ILAC Joint General Assembly in October 2019, the following significant resolutions were adopted in relation to the development of the IAF and ILAC partnership:
- JGA Frankfurt Resolution 1 – Recommendation to Establish a Single International Accreditation Organization (1)
The Joint General Assembly endorses the recommendation of the Joint Executive Committee to establish a single international organization for accreditation on the basis of the results of the “Survey In Support of the IAF 2020 – 2025 and ILAC 2021 – 2025 Strategic Plans”
- JGA Frankfurt Resolution 2 – Recommendation to Establish a Single International Accreditation Organization (2)
The Joint General Assembly endorses the recommendation of the Joint Executive Committee to create a Steering Committee, reporting to the Joint Executive Committee, to lead the process to establish a single international organization for accreditation. In this regard, a contractor will be engaged and the costs for the project will be shared equally by IAF and ILAC.
As a result of these resolutions, the joint IAF/ILAC Steering Committee has prepared a tender document for the selection of a contractor that will help IAF and ILAC in the process of establishing a single international accreditation organization.
This is a significant phase in the evolution of the world accreditation framework.
