Abstract

Quality infrastructure of the global market and the role of accredited laboratories

The most important activity for the prosperity of every economy is the exchange of goods and services. Nothing happens until somebody sells something to somebody else. The more often, the better. In order to facilitate that exchange of goods and services, every country must ensure complete trust between sellers and buyers. The buyer must be convinced that what he or she buys is safe and of declared quality. And that is why in the past as well as nowadays, there always has been established a certain quality infrastructure. Laboratories play important role in safety and quality of products appearing in the global market and in achieving confidence and trust between suppliers and consumers. That’s why it is also important to have confidence into the test reports laboratories issue. This leads us to the accreditation of laboratories, for instance according to the internationally recognized standard ISO/IEC 17025. The article shows the modern quality infrastructure, place and role of each participant in it with special attention to the accreditation and accredited laboratories.
