There are two certification accreditation programs: – ISO/IEC 17024 (Conformity assessment – General requirements for bodies operating certification of persons) – Conference for Food Protection (CFP) Accreditation Standard for food protection managers.
Since its launch in 2003, our personnel certification accreditation program based on the international standard ISO/IEC 17024:2012, Conformity assessment – General requirements for bodies operating certification of persons, has helped certification programs make the journey from good to great. More than 5.2 million people worldwide and counting hold a certification from an ANAB-accredited organization.
ANAB is the first personnel certification accreditation body in the United States to meet internationally accepted practices for accreditation, and the first to become a signatory of the Pacific Accreditation Cooperation (PAC) Multilateral Arrangement (MLA) for ISO/IEC 17024. ANAB’s international involvement and recognition saves time and money for ANAB-accredited certification bodies looking to expand into international markets.
