Welcome to the Swiss Accreditation Service SAS

The Swiss Accreditation Service examines and accredits conformity assessment bodies (CAB) - i.e. calibration and testing laboratories, inspection and certification bodies as well as reference material producers and proficiency testing providers - according to international standards.

By means of accreditation the competence of a body to execute conformity assessments according to specified requirements is formally acknowledged.

The Swiss Accreditation Service is an important device to create a transparent and qualified infrastructure for conformity assessment bodies in all branches.
