9 June is observed as a World Accreditation Day every year in the world. The day aims to promote the role of accreditation in trade & the economy.

Theme for 2021 World Accreditation Day is “Accreditation: Supporting the Implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)”. 

It provides the opportunity for ILAC (International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation) and IAF (International Accreditation Forum) members to share examples with stakeholders, regulators and consumers of how accreditation may be applied to meet objectives such as increasing trade, addressing environment and health and safety concerns, and improving the general overall quality of output in an economy.

WAD is a global initiative, jointly established by the IAF and the ILAC, to raise awareness of the importance of accreditation.
