The ANSI National Accreditation Board (ANAB) is the largest multi-disciplinary accreditation body in North America.
We play an important role in ensuring the safety and quality of goods and services and in protecting the environment.
We accredit the full spectrum of conformity assessment bodies. You wouldn't want to be treated by a doctor who isn't board certified in her specialty, or send your child to a college that isn't accredited, would you? Like those accrediting bodies, we conduct assessments to make sure our clients follow international standards and are competent to do ther work.
EPTIS is a database established in 2000 in Europe, initially bringing together proficiency testing providers from 16 countries in the region. Since then, EPTIS Coordinators have sought to broaden their scope to other countries and regions, supported by leading international institutions representing testing and calibration laboratories, as well as the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC) and others. accreditation cooperations. In order to facilitate access to information on proficiency testing, in 2006 the Inter-American Accreditation Cooperation (IAAC) joined the EPTIS database on proficiency testing providers (www.eptis.bam.de). Through an IAAC project, funded by the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) and led by the IAAC Laboratory Subcommittee, chaired by Inmetro's General Accreditation Coordination (Cgcre), proficiency testing providers from Canada, the Caribbean , Central America and South America can be registered with EPTIS making it easier for laboratories to access information about programs available in the region.
Following this objective, QUALABOR registers all its completed programs in the database EPTIS (European Proficiency Testing Information System), informing its technical characteristics to those who have an interest.
