Accreditation by DAkkS also indirectly improves the quality and safety of products, services and processes through the regular monitoring of conformity assessment bodies. Because as the national accreditation body, we examine issues carefully, ask critical questions, make our assessments independently and our decisions responsibly. This is our legal mandate, and through it we make a decisive contribution to the protection of all market participants.
Accreditation by DAkkS is often the essential prerequisite for conformity assessment bodies to be able to offer their services on the market. Thanks to accreditation, consumers can feel safer in their everyday lives, because the system of accreditation means that numerous safety-relevant areas are inspected only by stakeholders who have subjected themselves to stringent state control.
In addition, accreditation creates planning security in business and the public sector. Whether or not an accreditation is available can be an essential factor for decision-making processes, and it also plays a role in the risk management of organisations. This is because organisations need to be sure that the conformity assessment they want to make use of has also been officially verified and is recognised internationally. Accreditation by DAkkS does exactly that.
