The Belarusian State Centre for Accreditation as a part of the Gosstandart exposition took part in the collective stand of scientific and technical developments in the thematic section “Trade in Services”, during which the presentation “National Accreditation System of the Republic of Belarus” was presented.
Visitors to the exhibition had the opportunity to receive information about the system and procedures for accreditation of the Republic of Belarus as one of the most important components in the national quality infrastructure. The interest of Chinese visitors to the exhibition also raised questions about the involvement of the BSCA into trade facilitation processes between Belarus and China in terms of increasing confidence in the results of accredited conformity assessment bodies.
