ANAB has been in business since 1989, having recognized early on the need for accreditation bodies to oversee the work of third-party conformity assessment bodies and thus provide credibility and confidence for those relying on tests, calibration results, and certification. 

ANAB focuses on customer needs while ensuring conformance with requirements. ANAB also is committed to working internationally to promote sound, rigorous, and harmonious accreditation processes.
