Industry News: IAS Offers Accreditation for Product Certification Agencies

WHITTIER, CA-The International Accreditation Service (IAS) has introduced a new program that accredits Product Certification Agencies under ISO/IEC Guide 65, General Requirements for Bodies Operating Product Certification Systems.

The IAS accreditation demonstrates that the certification agencies’ services, including testing, inspection, product surveillance and product labeling, have been properly evaluated and are under a program of continual monitoring by an internationally recognized accreditation body.

In addition to offering accreditation as a product certification agency, the new IAS program enables agencies to attain accreditation as a testing laboratory and inspection agency with only one audit. “Because our program requires fewer audits, it means lower costs, less downtime and less disruption to internal operations,” says Bruce DeMaine, IAS program manager.
