International Accreditation Forum (IAF)
The IAF is the world association of Conformity Assessment Accreditation Bodies and other bodies interested in conformity assessment in the fields of management systems, products, services, personnel and other similar programmes of conformity assessment. Its primary function is to develop a single worldwide program of conformity assessment which reduces risk for business and its customers by assuring them that accredited certificates may be relied upon. Accreditation assures users of the competence and impartiality of the body accredited.
Through our UKAS Accreditation, Auva have signed up to the terms of the IAF guidelines and can display their logo on our documentation including certificates we issue.

Auva are proud to be members of the Federation of Certification Bodies (FCB)
The Purpose of the Federation of Certification Bodies (FCB) is to provide Accredited Certification Bodies with a membership forum to allow discussion of matters of common interest, with the view to support the delivery of Accredited certification services. This may include collective discussion with representatives of Accreditation body(s) and others to help achieve this aim.
Membership of the FCB is open to all UKAS accredited certification bodies (and accredited certification bodies of other IAF MLA members), on application to the current FCB Chair.
Members of the FCB will be subject to regular review to ensure these requirements continue to be met. The Chair shall retain authority in such matters but subject to a simple majority ruling at regular meetings.
