Singapore Accreditation Council (SAC) is celebrating 30 years of accreditation this year. As part of the celebration, SAC is organising the SAC Customer Day, in conjunction with the World Accreditation Day on 9 June. The theme is Accreditation – A Global Tool to Support Public Policy.
SAC has invited an overseas speaker, Dr Llew Richards to share on the global trend in the regulatory landscape and to share on how overseas regulators, in particular Asia Pacific and New Zealand, have used accreditation. 
The SAC Customer Day is organised to give recognition to the newly accredited Conformity Assessment Bodies (CABs) and to celebrate the achievements of accreditation, made possible by the contributions of various stakeholders.
There will be a Discussion Forum to engage the participants and seek your valuable comments and feedback on various topics, including adoption of technologies for conformity assessment and mandatory issuance of endorsed certificates and reports.
