Hungarian Accreditation Board NAT terminated
Change in the Hungarian accreditation system: In accordance with the new Accreditation Act approved in the Hungarian Parliament the country's national accreditation body NAT ceased its activities on 31st December 2015.
The European Cooperation for Accreditation (EA) has confirmed that as a result NAT’s membership of EA and its EA Multilateral Agreement (EA MLA) signatory status is terminated. Conformity assessment documents issued under NAT accreditation are not covered anymore by the EA MLA since there is currently no MLA signatory in Hungary.
Contacts are going on between EA and the Hungarian ministry in charge in order to minimize negative effects. EA will publish updated information as soon as possible.
The full list of EA MLA signatories can be accessed on the EA website.
