DAkkS had suspended all activities in Iran in 2012
DAkkS perspectively intends to resume its accreditation activities in Iran. The German accreditation body is thus responding to the positive political developments surrounding the controversy about the country's nuclear programme. With the coming into force of the easing of economic sanctions foreseen in the agreement of 14 July 2015 in Vienna ("Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action") the accreditation of Iranian bodies is expected to become possible again.
A new document from the European co-operation for Accreditation (EA) provides national accreditation bodies with an important tool in future. This is intended to advance the harmonisation of the accreditation practice in the legally regulated sector in Europe.
