This week, the ILAC and IAF General Assembly was held in Montreal, Canada. The event marked the 30th anniversary of the founding of IAF. It involved discussions about the merger of these two organizations into a single international entity that would cover all fields of accreditation. In addition to adopting numerous resolutions, representatives from EA, including ATS, deliberated on the organization's structure, the roles and positions of stakeholders, and the advantages and potential drawbacks of such a unified organization.
Final adjustments are still pending, and in 2024, the world will witness the establishment of a new accreditation organization named GLOBAC.
