EU and Armenia to harmonise accreditation infrastructure

September 27, 2021

On 24 September, the EU Delegation to Armenia launched a new twinning project on ‘Setting Conditions for Recognition of the Armenian Accreditation System by the European Co-operation for Accreditation’.

“We believe that strengthening quality infrastructure is a complex and time-consuming exercise, being a crucial element in ensuring the competitiveness of the export sector,” said Frank Hess, Head of Cooperation at the EU Delegation to Armenia. This twinning aims to support the implementation of the EUArmenia CEPA agreement with regards to fostering an internationally recognised accreditation and conformity assessment system in Armenia.

The EU contribution to the project is €700,000.

The European Co-operation for Accreditation (EA), is a not-for-profit association appointed by the European Commission to develop and maintain a multilateral agreement of mutual recognition, based on a harmonised accreditation infrastructure, to facilitate fair trade, ensure product and service quality and reduce technical barriers to trade.
