Notes for International Accreditation Recognition No. 5 () . – MLA (multilateral mutual recognition agreement), . In order to confirm the equivalence of accreditation activities or the validity of reports and certificates issued by accredited organizations, EA members may use the EA-GW Statement of Acceptance and Recognition of Activities and make a “declaration of equivalence” in response to requests from regulators or other users. Mutual recognition is based on peer reviews between signatories to ensure that each other`s staff certifications are equivalent and that each certified professional can perform the required tasks. The market acceptance of EA-GWG and hence the results of the CBS compliance assessment results accredited by the EAVA signatories is of great importance to the European single market to facilitate cross-border trade and demonstrate compliance with EU legislation on products and services that contribute to the protection of health, safety and the environment. The presumption of compliance exists when a product is designed or manufactured to harmonized standards. We are talking here about the presumption of compliance with the accessibility requirements of the Directive (EU) 2019/882. There are currently four main areas for the IAF MLA: IAF ML 1:2016 Entomla documentation exchange guide for the evaluation of compliance assessment agencies (Number 3, published On January 08, 2016; Application of January 08, 2016) Describes the procedures for exchanging documents between accreditation bodies that are members of the IAF MLA when these documents, issued by the original accreditation body, are required for review in the context of evaluation activities related to the granting, maintenance, renewal, reduction, suspension and withdrawal of accreditation by the recipient accreditation body.
