Activities typically covered by accreditation include testing; calibration; inspection; certification of management systems, persons, products, processes, and services; provision of proficiency testing; production of reference materials; and validation and verification. ISO/IEC 17011 specifies base requirements for operations of accrediting bodies. Requirements contained in ISO/IEC 17011 are used to support peer evaluation mechanisms created at regional and international levels and through which confidence is provided that accreditation bodies around the world operate to the same standards.
