ЕА МАС positive decision: BSCA joined EA BLA

October 3, 2018

On October 3, 2018 in Budapest (Hungary), in the framework of the 40th meeting of the EA Multilateral Agreement Council (MAC), the positive decision was made to join the accreditation body of the Republic of Belarus to the EA BLA for:

  • Testing laboratories according to ISO/IEC 17025;
  • Calibration laboratories according to ISO/IEC 17025;
  • Certification bodies for Persons according to ISO/IEC 17024;
  • Certification bodies for Products according to ISO/IEC 17065;
  • Certification bodies for Management systems according to ISO/IEC 17021-1.

For reference use: The European Organization for Accreditation (EA) is the official accreditation infrastructure in the European Union in accordance with EU Regulation No. 765/2008. European accreditation bodies must maintain membership in this organization in order to create an equivalent level of reliability of conformity assessment performed by accredited CABs. Mutual trust and recognition of the conformity assessment results are based on the results of peer-evaluations of the accreditation bodies according to the EA-2/02 procedure. If the results of the peer-evaluations are positive, the accreditation bodies join the EA MLA (EA BLA).

Based on this positive decision, the Belarusian State Accreditation Center (BSCA) will sign agreements on mutual recognition with the The European Organization for Accreditation (EA), The International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC) and The International Accreditation Forum (IAF) in October-November of the current year.

The agreements on mutual recognition of EA BLA, ILAC MRA and IAF MLA will create conditions for the recognition of the results of accreditation of Belarusian CABs abroad. In practice, such recognition is the most important tool used by participants in international trade to ensure favorable conditions for the movement of goods to foreign markets. Certainly, this event is a big step towards the removal of technical barriers to trade.
