EA Report 2018 has been released
2019. 07. 07.

2018 ended for European co-operation for Accreditation (EA) on a high note: the signature of the 3rd Framework Partnership Agreement (FPA) with the European Commission (EC), followed by a similar agreement with EFTA (signed in April 2019). This is the proof of a continuously renewed confidence in what we accomplish, and it occurs at a decisive time for Europe.

In 2018, Regulation (EC) No 765/2008 has been in place for 10 years, 10 years of cooperation between the EC, EFTA, and EA, with a significant increase of Directives and Regulations using accreditation to support Public Policies in several sectors such as:

• Machinery, Lifts and other products under the New Legislative Framework;
• Official controls in the fields of food and feed law, animal health and welfare, plant health and plant protection products;
• Climate Change
• Railway;
• Motor Vehicles;
• Cybersecurity and elDAS (electronic Identification, Authentication and trust Services);
• General Data Protection.

Accreditation and its benefits are being considered and included, not only in European and national legislations, but also in trade agreements between the EU and third countries.
