Why we mark IQNET Day


Celebrated every 11 November, IQNET Day highlights the importance of the network to the conformity assessment community.


Its worldwide representation, through IQNET Association Partners, has significantly strengthened the importance of certifiable management systems, products, processes and services apart from other types of conformity assessment activities - benefiting organizations, regardless of size and location - in improving their business processes as well as advancing on their competitiveness in the global marketplace. 


By combining local expertise with global experiences and recognition, IQNET Association is one of the few organizations tapped to shape proactive policies and practices in terms of accreditation, standardization, scheme development, and quality infrastructure, both at a local, regional and international level.  


The purpose of IQNET Day is to: 


• Celebrate the founding of IQNET Association, most of all, its inspirations – people and Partner organizations


• Count the network’s milestones in terms of memberships, policies, harmonization, product development, and contribution to the accreditation, standardization, scheme development and quality infrastructure areas


• Encourage IQNET Partners to launch a unified message and make it understandable within their sphere of influence.


First established in 1989 as EQNet, the network was later registered as IQNET - The International Certification Network  (1990) to signify its presence worldwide.  To date, IQNET has grown to 39 Partner certification bodies, and collectively providing conformity assessment services from more than 400 offices, through the competent and committed work of a team of more than 55,000.
