Accreditation's gate in France

Accreditation: supporting business, innovation and public policies

Developing new accreditation schemes is one of our core issues to address the market requests and needs.

Arising from various applicants, the requests may be enforced by regulation or private standards, as well as by conformity assessment bodies voluntarily looking for an official recognition of competencies.

Thanks to its strong service of general economic interest, Cofrac plays a major role in supporting innovation, public policies and economy in general. We collaborate with applicants to define the most appropriate accreditation scheme in respect of needs and current international standards.

In order to effectively address your requests, we have a dedicated organisation in place to deal with new accreditation scheme developments. You will find here information regarding your privileged contacts, the various stages of the development process and a few examples of completed developments in the Sharing trust section.
