We operate as a hub and depend on our strong, external relationships to enhance our services. This involves working closely with the large number of other organisations operating in the certification and inspection sphere.
We recognise the value of collaboration as essential to achieving the IASFC Treaty Goals of:
- integrity and confidence
- trade support
- international acceptance.
Through these external relationships we:
- tap into best practice in developing professional accreditation criteria and standards and benchmark what we do
- test our work with experts through systematic peer reviews
- test technical accuracy
- measure whether our performance is meeting the needs of the conformity assessment bodies and certifiers and inspectors who rely on us to perform their work.
