International Cooperation

Through DAK originators' accreditation status, calibration certificates, testing and inspection reports and certifications issued by Kosovo Conformity Assessment Bodies (CABs) enjoy equal status with their non-Kosovo equivalents within the European Union and by the international MLMRAs with ILAC, IAF and EA worldwide. The exchange of goods and services is a common objective for the single European market and for global trade. With the movement of goods and the provision of services being liberalized to a far-reaching extent, concomitant measures are required to ensure the quality of the goods being brought to market and of the services being provided. A recognized system of testing, calibration and certification (conformity assessments) offers reassurance that the products being marketed and the services being provided comply with the harmonization requirements of the European Community.


Accreditation is the formal recognition by a relevant body (accreditation body) that a conformity assessment body meets the particular requirements applying to that body in terms of qualification and equipment and may thus be deemed competent. It is becoming increasingly apparent that accreditation is a necessary prerequisite for successfully competing at the international level.


The single National Accreditation Body (NAB) is tied into the network of accreditation activities at the international level.


  • Accepts the accreditation bodies in line with Regulation (EC) 765/2008 and Conformity Assessment Bodies (CABs), which have been accredited by them as equivalent to the CABs accredited by DAK
  • Accepts that all accredited activities performed by CABs accredited by EA MLA signatories, which have signed the MLA for the relevant activity, as covered by the MLA
  • Accepts reports, certificates and other similar documents from CABs within the scope of accreditation, which are accredited by a EA NAB, as equally reliable and equivalent to such documents from CABs, which are accredited by Akkreditierung Austria
  • Recognises in the same way the rules of the ILAC/IAF MLMRAs

Thus, DAK represents Kosovo in the field of accreditation in the following regional and international organizations.

EA exists to coordinate and lead the European accreditation infrastructure to allow the results of conformity assessment services in one country be accepted by Regulators and the market place in another country without further examination through the EA Multilateral Agreement.


The EA MLA provides a framework to realise the objective ‘Accredited once, accepted everywhere’. A Bilateral Agreement (BLA) between an EA Associate member (or a NAB with a contract of cooperation with EA) and EA has the same purpose as the EA MLA.


DAK became an associated member of EA in 2011 (EA Resolution 2015 (28) 03). The Associate Membership Agreement was signed in Warsaw, Poland on 23 November 2015.


On October 3, 2018 in Budapest (Hungary), in the framework of the 40th meeting of the EA Multilateral Agreement Council (MAC), the positive decision was made to join the accreditation body of the Republic of Belarus to the EA BLA for:


- Testing laboratories according to ISO/IEC 17025;

- Calibration laboratories according to ISO/IEC 17025;

- Certification bodies for Persons according to ISO/IEC 17024;

- Certification bodies for Products according to ISO/IEC 17065;

- Certification bodies for Management systems according to ISO/IEC 17021-1.


On October 26, 2020 in Paris (France) in the framework of the 45th meeting (online) of the EA Multilateral Agreement Council (MAC) the positive decision was made to join the accreditation body of the Republic of Belarus to the EA BLA for:

- Medical Examination (ISO 15189)

- Inspection (ISO/IEC 17020)

- Proficiency Testing Providers (ISO/IEC 17043)




ILAC is the international authority on laboratory, inspection body, proficiency testing provider and reference material producer accreditation, with a membership consisting of accreditation bodies and stakeholder organizations throughout the world.


ILAC aims to demonstrate the equivalence of the operation of its Member Accreditation Bodies through this Arrangement. As a consequence, the competence (within the accredited scopes) of laboratories, inspection bodies, proficiency testing providers and reference material producers accredited by these accreditation bodies is demonstrated and recognised by all signatory accreditation bodies. The market can then be confident in accepting certificates and reports issued by the accredited laboratories, inspection bodies, proficiency testing providers and reference material producers.


DAK has been an associated member of ILAC since 2015. The resolution of the 15th ILAC General Assembly on accepting DAK as an associated member of ILAC was adopted on 21 December 2015 in Sydney, Australia - see the ILAC Resolution N15.03.


Since October 5, 2018 DAK has been the ILAC MRA signatory in the field of

- Testing (ISO/IEC 17025)

- Calibration (ISO/IEC 17025)


Since June 5, 2020 DAK has been the ILAC MRA signatory in the field of

- Medical Examination (ISO 15189)

- Inspection (ISO/IEC 17020)

- Proficiency Testing Providers (ISO/IEC 17043)




IAF is the world association of Accreditation Bodies providing accreditation on certification bodies (management systems certification bodies, products certification bodies, personnel certification bodies).


The primary purpose of IAF is to establish and maintain Multilateral Recognition Arrangement (MLA). The purpose of the IAF MLA is to allow accreditations and the certificates issued by certification bodies accredited by members of the MLA to be recognised by the other members of the MLA. The objective is that the MLA will cover all accreditation bodies in all countries in the world, thus eliminating the need for suppliers of products or services to be certified in each country where they sell their products or services (certified once accepted everywhere).


Membership of the MLA is based on peer evaluation of each applicant for membership of the MLA and continued surveillance of each member to ensure and confirm that all the members of the MLA operate their accreditation programs, and are implementing the Guidelines, consistently and in an equivalent way.


DAK became a member of the IAF on September 11, 2015 - see the IAF General Assembly resolution 2015-09. The official documents confirming DAK membership in IAF (Code of Condact and Memorandum of Understanding) were signed during IAF General Assembly in Milan, Italy.


Since October 17, 2018 DAK has been the IAF MLA signatory in the field of


- Product Certification (ISO/IEC 17065)

- Management Systems Certification (ISO/IEC 17021-1)

- Certification of Persons (ISO/IEC 17024)
