About Us

The Arab Accreditation Cooperation [ARAC] is one of the main pillars of the Pan Arab quality infrastructure established by the Ministerial Decree of the Arab Industrial Development and Mining Organization (AIDMO) in June 2008. 

 

The current membership includes 15 members covering 17 Arab countries (Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Libya, Mauritania, Morocco, Oman, Palestine, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Tunisia, United Arab Emirates & Yemen).

 

Among the ARAC 11 full members 4 are ARAC MLA Signatories (Dubai Accreditation Center, Egyptian Accreditation Council, Tunisian Accreditation Council and Jordanian Accreditation System).

 

ARAC was launched on June 12, 2011 to be the Arab Cooperation Accreditation Body for the planning, development and coordination of the accreditation infrastructure in the Arab region (22 Arab countries) to support inter / intra Arab trade, improve the competitiveness, provide trust in Arab goods and services and protect health and safety of the public and the environment.

 

Following the 95th Ministerial Economic and Social Council meeting of the League of Arab States [LAS], held on 19th February 2015 in LAS headquarters, in Cairo, Egypt, the Ministerial Economic and Social Council has recognized ARAC as one of the main pillars of the Pan Arab quality infrastructure in supporting intra-regional trade and the Arab Customs Union requirements.
