The ANAB inspection body accreditation program is nationally and internationally recognized and enables inspection bodies to demonstrate competent inspection operations and promotes confidence in the inspections performed.
The goal of the ANAB inspection body accreditation program is to provide 3rd party assurance of the quality of inspection activities with the objective of promoting confidence in inspection through accreditation and assuring compliance with the international standard ISO/IEC 17020.
ANAB accredited inspection bodies may carry out inspection activities on behalf of private clients, their parent organizations, or authorities, with the objective of providing information about the conformity of inspected items with regulations, standards, specifications, inspection schemes or contracts.
Inspection activities may include matters of quantity, quality, safety, fitness for purpose, and continued safety compliance of installations or systems in operation. Inspection bodies may perform inspections on the examination of materials, products, installations, plants, processes, work procedures or services, and the determination of their conformity with requirements and the subsequent reporting of results of these activities to clients and, when required, to authorities.
The ANAB inspection body accreditation program was designed to assure the quality of inspection bodies through assuring compliance with ISO/IEC 17020. This internationally accepted standard was developed with the participation of industry experts, regulators, and stakeholders and is used as the foundation for assuring the quality of inspection bodies and the data they produce.
Inspection accreditation can help move your organization toward global recognition, consistent operations, and a competitive advantage.
