About ILAC

ILAC is the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation for both laboratory and inspection accreditation bodies formed more than 30 years ago to help remove technical barriers to trade.  These arrangements are managed by ILAC, in the field of laboratory and inspection accreditation, and the International Accreditation Forum (IAF), in the fields of management systems, products, services, personnel and other similar programs of conformity assessment. Both organizations, ILAC and IAF work together and coordinate their efforts to enhance the accreditation and the conformity assessment worldwide.  ILAC first started as a conference in 1977 with the aim of developing international cooperation for facilitating trade, by promotion of the acceptance of accredited test and calibration results.
