IAF Seal

The International Accreditation Forum (IAF) is the world association of Conformity Assessment Accreditation Bodies. Its main function is to develop a world-wide program of conformity assessment which will promote the elimination of non-tariff barriers to trade.

IAF membership includes accreditation bodies from all parts of the world, industry representatives and accredited certification bodies.

IAF's objectives include facilitating trade and commerce, in accordance with World Trade Organisation policies, by establishing a Multilateral Mutual Recognition Arrangement (MLA) based on the equivalence of accreditation programmes operated by accreditation body members, verified through peer review among those accreditation body members.
