Management systems Information about this sector

Role of accreditation in this sector

Across sector and industry boundaries: in their many areas of application, that is how management systems work. Accreditation plays an important role in this. It verifies the competence of conformity assessment bodies, whose job is to verify the correct application of relevant standards in enterprises and other organisations. This primarily concerns areas such as quality and energy management. But accreditation is also used in other important areas such as occupational safety, food safety and IT security.
