Quality infrastructure is required for the effective operation of domestic markets, and its international recognition is important to facilitate access to foreign markets. It relies on metrology, standardization, accreditation, conformity assessment, and market surveillance.

This site has been developed by the global quality infrastructure partners (INetQI) represented by the BIPM, IAF, IEC, ILAC, ISO, ITC, ITU, OIML, UNECE, World Bank Group, WTO and UNIDO to demonstrate how the quality infrastructure supports policy objectives.

We are always seeking the best examples to post on this website of conformity assessment helping the public sector. If you have a great example, please send it to us at or
