ICAB MLA - About ICAB MLA

Accreditation body members of ICAB are admitted to the ICAB MLA only after a stringent evaluation of their operations by a peer evaluation team which is charged to ensure that the applicant member complies fully with both the international standards and ICAB requirements. Once an accreditation body is a signatory of the ICAB MLA it is required to recognise the certificates issued by conformity assessment bodies accredited by all other signatories of the ICAB MLA, with the appropriate scope.


ICAB encourages members to join the MLA as soon as they pass a rigorous evaluation process which ensures that their accreditation programs are of world standard.  The consequence of joining the ICAB MLA is that conformity assessment certificates issued by conformity assessment bodies accredited by any one of the members of the ICAB MLA will be recognised in the world wide ICAB program.
