Accreditation Awareness Campaign

  • False Propaganda By Our Competitors 16-Feb-2015
    • We have been informed by one of our estemmed customers that our competitors in India have allegedly displayed a news item on their website claiming that "ACCAB's complaint & appeal is dismissed" when this customer sought further explanation he was allegedly informed by their officer that ACCAB has been asked by the government to close down the operations. ACCAB's comment: The said allegedly propaganda is totally false and mallecious and has been deliberately spread to hurt the reputation of ACCAB. It is perhaps an act of desperation wherein now customers are showing open displeasure towards anything bureaucratic and non value added activities.

Accreditation business international and there are already several international bodies operating in India; 2. Accreditation Bodies are not required to be covered under any network of law and are free to grant certificates of accreditation to the laboratories in India, this also means that ACCAB does not require any permission, sanction or approval of any ministry/government department/agency to operate as an independent accreditation body; 3. All the government notification were prior to the business set up by ACCAB, and even in these notifications it is suggested that any other accreditation body comparable were acceptable to the government companies; 4.
