BSCA

The formation of the National Accreditation System in the Republic of Belarus started in 1992. The state standards of the Republic of Belarus were developed on the basis of EN 45000 series and ISO/IEC Guides. Thereby the principles of the National Accreditation System of the Republic of Belarus were harmonized with the international requirements.

Before 2010 accreditation was performed by several accreditation bodies. In 2010 they were merged into one legal entity – thus, the Republican Unitary Enterprise “Belarusian State Centre for Accreditation” was established as the sole accreditation body of the Republic of Belarus. There was a transition period within which BSCA accreditation rules and procedures were brought into compliance with EA requirements.
