The relationship between UNI and Accredia will be increasingly closer and aimed at shared objectives of enhancement of the standardization activity and accreditation, but it will also extend to the cooperation in funded European projects and to the dissemination of the “UNI mark” (which may accompany the accredited certifications against requirements defined by the standardization body) thanks to the agreement signed by the presidents Giuseppe Rossi (UNI) and Massimo De Felice (Accredia) for the next 3 years.

uni accredia relationshipStarting from the solid basis of the cross-participation in the governance bodies, UNI and Accredia have decided to develop the synergies that can arise from the systematic comparison and in-depth analysis of pre-regulatory, regulatory issues, of standards use and reference practices to give additional added value to the drafting of the standardization products.

All this not only at national level, through an increase of the participation of Accredia representatives in the UNI technical bodies, but also in the CEN and ISO activities; in the latter also with a view to developing the national strategy for the acquisition of leadership in the conduct of work (with positions of presidency, coordination and secretariat).
Joint information and training activities will be reinforced and the participation of UNI experts in accreditation-related verification activities will be possible.

The promotion of the value of accredited certification based on requirements defined by UNI will be a further strand of joint activity, to give visibility to products, services, processes, management systems, assertions and professionals (especially those who operate in the "non orderly" sectors regulated by Law 4/2013) who believe in - and work for - "a well made world".
"The experience in Accredia and the path taken to set up the Quality Infrastructure have made it clear to me the need for close synergies between standardization and accreditation to improve the quality (in the broadest sense) of products and services, the effectiveness and efficiency of the processes and management systems of organizations, the reliability of the performance of professionals and their skills" says Giuseppe Rossi, who before becoming UNI president - last February - led Accredia for 6 years.
"The more we work in synergy following common and shared principles and criteria, the more we will add value and give benefits to the economic and social system of the Country".

"I also believe that standardization and accreditation, together with the other components of the Quality Infrastructure, can play an important role in this delicate phase of relaunch of the Country through the implementation of the NextGenEU plan", continues Massimo De Felice, President of the Accreditation Body.
"In ACCREDIA we have highly qualified technical skills, the result of a careful selection, necessary to ensure reliable certifications to the market. The renewed collaboration with UNI will therefore be an important opportunity to make these skills available in the national and international standardization tables, demonstrating that the two Bodies can represent a strategic support for Public Administration and businesses for the benefit of consumers".
