World Accreditation Day 2023 – Supporting the Future of Global Trade

Dear Members

The World Accreditation Day poster for 2023 is now available to download on the IAF website here and the ILAC website here. The WAD 2023 poster was created by Vivek Vardhan and is the result of a competition run by ILAC and IAF. You can find more information about the contest winners here. A template version for translating the text into other languages is also available in the members’ area of the IAF website here, and the ILAC website here.

This year’s World Accreditation Day theme Accreditation: Supporting the Future of Global Trade focuses on how accreditation supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 9, 10, 14, and 17.

As in previous years, a Joint Statement from the ILAC and IAF Chairs will be issued, as well as a brochure and video to promote the event. These materials will be posted on the IAF and ILAC websites when available.

Follow IAF (@IAF_Global) and ILAC (@ILAC_Official) on Twitter and IAF on LinkedIn (International Accreditation Forum Inc) for more information about accreditation supporting the implementation of the SDGs in the period leading up to WAD, and celebrate with us online using the hashtag #WAD2023.
