The services and tests issued under ILAC accreditation are conformity assessment activities, aimed at certifying compliance with the requirements set out in mandatory or voluntary standards concerning various product characteristics, such as electromagnetic compatibility, safety, suitability for environmental stress, correct use of the radioelectric spectrum, etc.
Conformity assessment carried out under accreditation provides a guarantee to businesses, institutions and consumers that activities have been carried out in compliance with technical and management standards and therefore contributes to greater confidence in the quality and safety of goods circulating on the market.
