MLA Coverage

MLA Coverage

  All conformity assessment results (e.g. reports ad certificates) provided by conformity assessment bodies accredited by a national accreditation body signatory to the ARAC MLA are considered to be under the ARAC MLA provided. Reports and certificates bear the accreditation mark and the body accreditation number.


To date, the ARAC MLA covers the following activities and standards:

Accreditation of Scope/Activity: Standard
Laboratories Testing and Medical examinations ISO/IEC 17025 ISO 15189
Laboratories Calibration ISO/IEC 17025
Certification Bodies Management Systems Certification (QMS, EMS and FSMS) ISO/IEC 17021
Inspection Inspection ISO/IEC 17020


Reports and certificates issued by accredited conformity assessment bodies for scopes under the ARAC MLA must bear the accreditation mark of the national accreditation body and the accreditation number of the conformity assessment body. Actually ARAC is working on the extension of its MLA to cover the accreditation of product certification bodies and will be included in the ARAC MLA when the decision will be taken by the ARAC General.
