National Quality Infrastructure

National Quality Infrastructure comprisesaspects related to metrology, standardization, accreditation, conformity assessment (production compliance with standards), testing and quality management.

  • Metrology - Metrology includes the aspects related to measurement and measuring instruments;
  • Standardization–ensures to set rules, principles and general characteristics related to the  products and production methods, ensuring adaption of International and Regional European standards as a Georgian standards;
  • Accreditation - that’s the procedure, with which authorized entity gives the official recognition, that the person or organization is competent to carry out specific tasks.
  • Conformity Assessment–conformity assessment sets the product compliance with standards and technical regulations.

National Quality Infrastructure is significant for the international recognition of product and service and its further competitiveness. Correspondingly, national quality infrastructure issignificant for export.
