Insight into the APLAC Member Survey on Report Credibility
Insight into the APLAC Member Survey on Report Credibility
Wanji C. J. Yang, Taiwan Accreditation Foundation
This article describes the analysis of a member survey conducted by the Asia Pacific Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (APLAC) on test and inspection report credibility. This survey was the very first survey on this issue amongst accreditation bodies (ABs). The subject of this survey was first conceived during a meeting of APEC TEL MRA Task Force in 2012, when telecommunications regulators from several economies expressed concerns about counterfeit report issues. The APLAC Board of Management later decided to initiate a survey to collect information and opinions from its full members, as the starting point of addressing these concerns and help members share experience. The survey was conducted during 21 July 2014 to 20 August 2014, and the analysis results were subsequently presented at meetings of APEC TEL50 and ILAC/IAF meeting in 2014.
