Author(s)

Abstract

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) sponsored the NIST Conformity Assessment for a Changing Government Workshop on December 3, 2001. The National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act (NTTAA) of 1995 instructs NIST to work with other Federal agencies and with private sector organizations to coordinate testing, certification, inspection, laboratory accreditation, and other conformity assessment activities in the United States with the goal of reducing duplication and complexity. This publication is a compilation of speeches and presentations from multiple speakers on various conformity assessment-related topics including laboratory accreditation, testing, third party certification, supplier's declaration of conformity, and quality management and registration systems.
