Supporting TÜRKAK on World Accreditation Day
OCA Global's Consulting and Technical Advisory division supports TÜRKAK (Turkish Accreditation Body) in the organization and development of the World Accreditation Day (WAD) event held in Ankara on November 24 and 25th, 2021.
TÜRKAK's General Secretary -Ms. Banu Müderrisoĝlu- and OCA Global's Project Manager -Ms. Fabiana Silva- made the opening speeches and welcomed speakers and seminar participants.
Established by ILAC and IAF as a global initiative to promote the value of accreditation, WAD2021 has focused on its use to support the implementation of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It provides an opportunity for ILAC and IAF members to share with stakeholders, regulators and consumers examples of: how accreditation can be applied to increase trade, how to solve environmental, health and safety problems, and how to improve overall quality of production in an economy.
Thus, our Consulting and Technical Advisory team has been leading the implementation of the European Union (EU) funded project which aims to increase TÜRKAK's technical capacity in order to improve product safety and free movement, both in the EU and internationally,
