IAA Mission

Our Mission Statement is to provide quality international accreditation services to certification bodies

The International Accreditation Agency (IAA) is an independent, 'not-for-profit' agency which is funded through fees charged for its accreditation services to Certification Bodies and Training Organisations.

The IAA employs its own independent accreditation framework and also promotes the mutual recognition of accreditation agencies for the benefit of worldwide certifications e.g. ISO standards, recognition and continued development of International Standards.

The IAA firmly believes that its approach encourages the proliferation of harmonised standards resulting in increased international trade, commerce and employment.

Certification Bodies that share this philosophy are invited to gain membership of the IAA.
