Many conformity assessment bodies (CABs) operate in isolation from their peers. By participating in the SAC accreditation programmes, a CAB is able to have independent confirmation that it is operating at levels that others deem to be competent. Where deficiencies are revealed, through the accreditation process, you also have the opportunity to take corrective actions to improve your performance.
Accreditation can also provide a marketing advantage for you. Your customers will have more confidence, knowing that you have been subjected to independent evaluation by SAC.
Furthermore, you may leverage on SAC’s network of MRA partners in IAF, ILAC, or the regional Cooperation Bodies (such as APLAC and PAC), so that you are recognised internationally.
The key resource of any accreditation body is its team of volunteers, assessors and committee members, who are people with a high level of competence and dedication in the fields in which the accreditation body is offering its services.
