This Webinar is intended for anyone who wants to understand the key differences between Accreditation and Certification.
“Accreditation” and “Certification” are oftentimes used synonymously, and while related and equally important in the conformity assessment system, the two terms mean quite different things. Using the terms appropriately, allows for better understanding of conformity assessment and the role that each term plays.
In this webinar, we will define accreditation and certification and examine how they are related within the conformity assessment system and review the differences between the terms. We will discuss different types of accreditations and certifications available. And finally, we will demonstrate through examples how to use the terms appropriately.
