9 June 2021 marks World Accreditation Day – Accreditation: Supporting the implementation of the SDGs (#WAD2021).
WAD is a global initiative established by the IAF and ILAC to promote the value of accreditation. This year’s theme focuses on the UN’s Sustainable Development Agenda and promoting the many ways in which accreditation can help meet these goals. Materials for supporting the promotion and celebration of this event including a poster, brochure and joint statement for your use, can be accessed here. Social media resources have also been made available for members and three videos focusing on people, planet and prosperity can be expected mid-May.
In addition, the Public Sector Assurance and Business Benefits websites, which contain case studies, research and supporting materials demonstrating the benefits and value of accreditation, now feature an option for searching by SDG. We encourage members to visit these websites for additional materials to support their WAD activities.
Follow IAF (@IAF_Global) and ILAC (@ILAC_Official) on Twitter for the latest updates. If you are active on social media, use #WAD2021.
Happy World Accreditation Day.
