Accreditation Bodies (ABs) and Conformity Assessment Bodies (CABs) operate independently from each other, yet there inter-dependency is vital to ensure accredited conformity assessment works for all its stakeholders – customers, regulators, businesses, government and consumers. This video goes into greater depth on this vital relationship between IAF – as the organisation drawing ABs together and IIOC, as one of the conformity assessment body association members of IAF.

As well as being Chief Executive of IIOC, Marcus is also Chair of the IAF Conformity Assessment Body Advisory Committee, representing CAB association members of IAF on the IAF Board and Executive Committee. https://bit.ly/IAFIIOC
