Dubai Accreditation Centre (DAC), approved under the Dubai Municipality, Govt. of Dubai. Accreditation by DAC is formal recognition that a Conformity Assessment Body (CAB) is competent to carry out specific tasks, i.e. specific types of tests, calibration methods, inspections, or certification activities. The specific areas of competence are specified in the scope of accreditation.
DAC accreditation is granted after detailed assessment of the competence of the CAB staff against defined technical and management system criteria. This assessment is conducted by DAC permanent staff in association with external experts, referred to as Technical Assessors, being assessed as per the Technical Standards. External Technical Assessors can be found in the particular field of technology or industry; in CABs, manufacturing companies, Universities, research centers and some governmental departments.
