Dear Friends and Colleagues,


We take pleasure in extending an invitation to all of you to participate in the Joint Annual Meetings of IAF and ILAC , being hosted jointly by NABCB and NABL at New Delhi , during the period of 26 Oct 2016 - 4 Nov 2016. It is a matter of great pride for us to host this prestigious event in India's capital city.

We wish that the deliberations in the meetings further strengthen the global accreditation framework and support harmonization of conformity assessment activities across the world to facilitate cross border movement of goods and services. These meetings should help us move further towards the common goal of Inspected, Tested or Certified Once, Accepted Everywhere.

We also take this opportunity to invite all of you with your loved ones to INDIA- a fascinating country of natural beauty, compassion and adventure. India boasts of having diverse culture, terrain, cuisine and people. “Athiti Devo Bhava”, the Sanskrit verse which means that Guest is our GOD, is what every Indian home practices. Drawing from this, NABCB and NABL extend their hospitality to all of you - our Guests , to ensure that you have a life time experience during your visit to India and go back with fondest memories of your stay here with dreams of coming back to explore more.

The meetings dates were planned so that “Diwali”, the festival of lights, India's most important festival, falls during the period of your visit and all of you have a chance to experience the rich tradition, culture and heritage of India during this festival. A surprise is in store for you on 30 October evening. We have also planned interesting social activities for you to unwind before or after the technical sessions, to let you get a feel of the real India .

Mark Twain described India as “ The one land that all men desire to see and having seen once by even a glimpse, would not give that glimpse for the shows of all the rest of the world combined.” It will be our endeavour to try and make you feel just the way Mark Twain did !!

We look forward to seeing you in NEW DELHI.

Chairman - IAF

As IAF and ILAC Chairs, we are particularly keen to welcome you to the Joint IAF and ILAC General Assemblies and related meetings this year. Aside from the exciting city of New Delhi, the Indian culture and hospitality - this years’ event is a first for me, Xiao as IAF Chair and a last for me, Pete as ILAC Chair. In addition this year will be memorable, as it is the last time these meetings will be hosted by a member organisation of IAF and ILAC since the agreed plan is for IAF and ILAC to directly host the meetings in the future.

As usual, we have many meetings scheduled throughout the 10-day period. In particular, the TFs that have been established to address many of the actions around the implementation of the recently adopted IAF and ILAC Strategic plans will report on progress to the memberships. In addition, we are also in the process of contacting representatives from a range of different international organisations to broaden interest in the JGA.

The opportunity for face-to-face interaction via this series of meetings each year, both with our IAF and ILAC peers in accreditation and with our stakeholders and liaison partners continues to be of great benefit and enjoyment. Our Indian hosts promise a delightful and memorable event. We look forward to seeing you in New Delhi in October!
