International cooperation

International cooperation removes technical barriers to trade and makes it easier for countries to do business with one another. This helps boost economies, streamline operations, save money and build confidence in the marketplace.

NAAM supports international cooperation by establishing arrangements with accreditation bodies operating around the world.

These arrangements mean countries recognise and accept each other’s certificates and inspection reports. This reduces the time, money and effort involved in re-certifying or re-inspecting. It makes it more efficient for one country to do business with another country.

NAAM is an active member of and signatory to several cooperative arrangements between accreditors.

We have established arrangements with:

International Accreditation Forum (IAF)—the world association of bodies interested in conformity assessment in the fields of management systems, products, services, personal and other programs of conformity assessment.  (membership in process, send a message to to review the follow-up.)

International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC) —an international cooperation of laboratory and inspection accreditation bodies formed more than 30 years ago to help remove technical barriers to trade. (membership in process, send a message to to review the follow-up.)

NAAM works within an international framework under the World Trade Organization to support the flow of goods and services by eliminating technical barriers to trade. Our accreditation framework and systems are recognised internationally as being consistent with World Trade Organization principles and supporting good regulatory practice and market acceptance.
