Recognition of COFRAC, UKAS accreditation in Europe and worldwide

In Europe

The nationally-recognized accreditation bodies in Europe have networked to form the EA (European Cooperation for Accreditation) infrastructure, and co-signed an EU-frameworked mutual recognition agreement for their conformity assessment activities, notably for certifications covering management systems, products and services, and people.

Under this framework, COFRAC (accreditations N°4-0001, 4-0057, 4-0571, 5-0030, 5-0071; Scope available at www.cofrac.fr ) and UKAS (accreditation N°022; Scope available at www.ukas.com ) accreditations are officially recognized in every single country where EA-member accreditation bodies operate, just as if AFNOR Certification and the AFNOR UK Ltd had been accredited by each of these accreditation bodies, thereby avoiding a build-up of superfluous accreditations. The list of signatories to the EA multilateral agreement can be found here.

 
Worldwide

EA is a member of the worldwide IAF (International Accreditation Forum) network, and has signed a mutual recognition agreement with the other IAF member bodies covering quality certification body accreditation. The list of IAF network members can be found here .
