18 Jul A global database for accredited certifications
IAF (International Accreditation Forum) announced the development of a database with all accredited management system certification issued globally. This is a difficult task to accomplish and it depends on the openness of certification bodies to provide this data, unless this becomes a mandatory requirement for accreditation. This is not the first time such a database is being developed. ISO tried to create a similar database called CERTO, but gave up quickly reasoning that it is not realistic to create such a database.
