Developed New National Accreditation System

The new system is established to ensure all Cambodia-made products meet ASEAN and international quality standards as the Kingdom prepares for regional integration at the end of the year. MIH needs to make sure that companies and agencies that provide product certification services are equipped to do so and are operating to the highest standards. All Cambodian-made products, from garments, rice, locally produced snacks to even bottled water, require a level of accreditation when packaged and sold domesticity or for export. Thailand’s National Standardization Council will work with the MIH’s Department of Accreditation to install the system. Currently, Cambodia’s accreditation system and laboratories are under the oversight of the MIH, the Ministry of Agriculture and the Ministry of Public Health. The newly established Department of Accreditation under the MIH will now serve as the single government oversight body making the process faster and less complicated.
