International Cooperation

"Creating conditions for mutual recognition of conformity assesment results produced by of accredited bodies in the international and interstate/regional level" is mentioned as one of the objectives of accreditation in accordance with article 43 of the Law of the Republic of Belarus N 437-3 of October 24, 2016 «On assessment for compliance with technical requirements and on accreditation of conformity assessment bodies".

This requires from BSCA to establish cooperation in the field of accreditation in all regions where Belarusian goods are sold (50% of the goods produced in Belarus are exported).

Thus, BSCA represents Belarus in the field of accreditation in the following regional and international organisations.


ILAC is the international authority on laboratory, inspection body, proficiency testing provider and reference material producer accreditation, with a membership consisting of accreditation bodies and stakeholder organizations throughout the world.

ILAC aims to demonstrate the equivalence of the operation of its Member Accreditation Bodies through this Arrangement. As a consequence, the competence (within the accredited scopes) of laboratories, inspection bodies, proficiency testing providers and reference material producers accredited by these accreditation bodies is demonstrated and recognised by all signatory accreditation bodies. The market can then be confident in accepting certificates and reports issued by the accredited laboratories, inspection bodies, proficiency testing providers and reference material producers.

BSCA has been an associated member of ILAC since 2011. The resolution of the 15th ILAC General Assembly on accepting BSCA as an associated member of ILAC was adopted on 21 December 2011 in Sydney, Australia - see the ILAC Resolution N15.03.
