NPL, UKAS, BSI and the EU Border Assistance Mission (EUBAM) partnered with the National Accreditation Agency of Ukraine (NAAU) to gain international recognition for NAAU accreditation services.

Over two years the partners provided a Resident Twinning Advisor to work at NAAU, analysed Ukraine’s accreditation framework and created a development plan for NAAU. They delivered training and mentoring, shared their EU accreditation body experience and improved work procedures for the accreditation of calibration laboratories.

As a result the accreditation function of NAAU is aligned with the relevant international standards and NAAU has moved towards ILAC, IAF and European Cooperation for Accreditation (EA) recognition. The efficiency of NAAU’s operations has been strengthened as has the capacity of its personnel to accredit conformity assessment bodies and calibration laboratories.
