“COFRAC is therefore at the peak of the structure required by the public authorities in the pyramid of trust. Certifying that the accredited organizations are competent and impartial, obtaining acceptance of their services at international level and recognition of the skills of laboratories, inspection and certification organizations: this is the twofold mission of the COFRAC, the French accreditation committee, conducted in application of national regulations and European directives. A major player in conformity assessment, COFRAC enjoys the confidence of the public authorities, its partners, the accredited organizations and their customers. All believe in accreditation, convinced of the added value it brings: legitimate skill, confidence of the financial players, international recognition opening the doors to export.’’
