Welcome to the only official source of information on accreditations in Colombia within the framework of the National Quality Subsystem:
the Official Directory of Conformity Assessment Bodies (CABs) accredited by ONAC
The accreditation schemes provided by ONAC support the declaration it makes, as an accreditation body, regarding the competence of the Conformity Assessment Bodies to perform their activity in accordance with international assessment standards in globally recognized fields, and most of the time, with scopes referring to national regulations.
In this sense, ONAC provides accreditation services in accordance with the requirements of the ISO/IEC 17011 standard “Conformity Assessment General requirements for accreditation bodies performing accreditation of conformity assessment bodies”. The services include the policies, criteria and guidelines established by the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC), the International Accreditation Forum (IAF) and the Inter-American Accreditation Cooperation (IAAC).
The area of Research and Development of ONAC seeks to provide the market with tools that add value to the activities of conformity assessment through the development of new services. It seeks constant change in environmental, socio-economic and social environments and market requirements, resulting in confidence in quality and improving the competence of the Conformity Assessment Bodies. In turn, this contributes substantially to the development, competitiveness, and economic recovery of Colombia, which is crucial in this time we are living in.
