All over the world, organisations and entrepreneurs agree that certification of best business practice provides valuable levels of reassurance for their customers.
EUACB is deemed the most popular independent accreditor of certifiers worldwide.
ASCB was formed in 1995 in the United Kingdom to accredit a range of international non-governmental certifying bodies that assess products, personnel and management systems.
We are proudly independent and free of political interference. With our global headquarters in the United States, we serve clients in over 70 countries worldwide, using internationally recognised conformity assessment standards. Our market strength lies in not being a government appointed accreditation body. We seek only to benefit our prospective partners and the public by processes of openness, simplicity and technical validation.
Certification is a fantastic business asset but we know there is sometimes a misunderstanding about certification, that governments deem it to be mandatory and that all certification bodies have to be accredited by a National Accreditation Body, when in fact accreditation remains voluntary.
For more details on the accreditation services we offer and details of our authority, please see our “How Do I Apply?” page
It’s all about reassurance
EUACB is in fact one of the leading international accreditation bodies in the world, respected for its integrity, practicality and impartiality. We pride ourselves on being technically outstanding without being overly bureaucratic.
Like an experienced mentor, as opposed to a judgemental overseer, we’re here to ensure you navigate a thorough, but swift path through to compliance. To date EUACB has accredited over 230 conformity assessment bodies in 70 countries; registered over 900 assessors, auditors and quality related personnel achievements; and certificated over 30,000 organisations with a combined estimated annual turnover of $250 billion and hiring over 1 million employees.
All certificated bodies, organisations and products are placed on the International Register (IRQAO) that has a live search function, providing the user with instant verification of the authenticity of any EUACB and other accredited certificate holder.
