Thus, NAAU has fully fulfilled its obligations to ensure the signing of the recognition agreements specified in the Action Plan for the implementation of the Strategy for the development of the technical regulation system for the period up to 2020, approved by the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine dated 19.08.2015, No. 844-p. From now on, the vast majority of NAAU activities are recognized not only on European, but also on the global level.

The signing of the IAF MLA has certain advantages not only for the national accreditation body, but also for the national government, regulators, business, manufacturers and consumers.

For the government of Ukraine the IAF MLA provides a reliable and solid foundation, which further allows to conclude international trade agreements.

For regulators the IAF MLA is a globally recognized indicator that demonstrates compliance with the international standards and requirements.

For business the IAF MLA provides information on the reliability of manufacturers and service providers that were certified by an accredited CAB.

Consumers gain confidence in goods and services that have a mark of conformity or are accompanied by a certificate of conformity. The IAF MLA ensures that such products and services meet the quality requirements and safety standards regardless of where they were produced or provided.
