Building a livable urban future through accreditation
The world is rapidly becoming more and more urban. For most of us, that means bigger, more connected and sophisticated cities to live and work in. But how can residents and consumers be sure that every part of the city infrastructure is structurally sound? How can modern city-dwellers avoid taking safety, quality and sustainability issues for granted?
Fortunately, there is an established system in place enabling the pursuit of urbanisation goals safely, efficiently and sustainably.
June 9 is World Accreditation Day 2017, a global initiative established by leading accreditation bodies, the International Accreditation Forum (IAF) and the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC). The initiative aims to promote the importance of accreditation in a range of industries, with the focus this year on how accreditation delivers confidence in the construction industry and the built environment.
