The ANSI National Accreditation Board (ANAB) provides accreditation in accordance with ISO/IEC 17065 for product, process, and service certification programs to ensure that the marketplace can gain confidence for their activities.

ANAB does not accredit or certify products, processes, and services; rather, we accredit organizations that can certify products, processes, and services. If you're seeking certification of a product, process, or service, find a certification body here.

ISO/IEC 17065 Product Certification Accreditation

The program is overseen by the Product Certification Accreditation Committee (ACC). The responsibilities of the committee include approving the key policy documents, reviewing the process of evaluation, accreditation decisions, and monitoring/auditing programs.

You can be accredited for ISO/IEC 17065 along with ISO/IEC 17025 and ISO/IEC 17020, and ANAB allows voluntary agreements for the Mutual Acceptance of Test Data.
