Progress on the development of the International Accreditation Forum (IAF) Database of Accredited Certifications (IAF CertSearch) continues, with development of the website and the all-important data collection.
From 21 June 2019, it will be ready to receive certification data from Certification Bodies regarding their Management Systems Standard (MSS) certified clients, such as ISO 14001:2015 and ISO 9001:2015.
Based on data from 31 May 2019, there are 62 National Accreditation Bodies have activated their accounts in IAF CertSearch and have uploaded details on 3,454 Certification Bodies.
It is understood that the IAF Database Management Committee will hold a series of webinars to support Certification Bodies during July 2019 & National Accreditation Bodies will receive further information about the rollout of IAF CertSearch in June 2019, including dates for the webinars.
Once the database is live to the public, an official public announcement will be made by the IAF covering social media, awareness and promotional campaigns, beginning with industry, governments, and key stakeholders globally.
Updates on the business benefits of the IAF CertSearch will be published in further posts.
