The IAS program is based on ISO/IEC Standard 17024 General requirements for bodies operating certification of persons. IAS’ international scope and perspective tailors its accreditation programs to serve national and international needs of governmental regulatory bodies and diverse industries concerned with personnel competency using uniform standards and best practices.

IAS operates accreditation programs under internationally recognized protocols that comply with ISO/IEC Standard 17011 Conformity Assessment – General requirements for accreditation bodies accrediting conformity assessment bodies. As a full member and signatory to the multilateral recognition arrangements (MLAs) of the Pacific Accreditation Cooperation and the International Accreditation Forum, IAS can assure international recognition of its accreditations.
