CEOC White Paper - Trends and Challenges for the third party TIC sector

We hereby have the pleasure to announce the publication of the CEOC White Paper providing you an overview of the current developments in the Testing, Inspection and Certification (TIC) sector, including the TIC market trends and current challenges that the TIC sector has to face.

This paper shows the TIC position on the currently on-going legislative discussions such as: the developments concerning ISO / IEC standards, the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) and its role in the developments of the European Conformity Assessment System and of a harmonised and well-functioning accreditation system.

The aim of CEOC International is to be the recognised voice of safety, compliance and quality in Europe and world-wide. Thus, an important chapter is focused on global safety issues and the added value of the TIC sector when protecting citizens from unsafe products and industrial installations, reducing compliance costs for SMEs, enhancing brand reputation and increasing consumers’ trust into a product.

Legislators and authorities can promote this development by supporting the need for independent assessments and by strengthening the role of the TIC sector in the global supply chains.

The White Paper can be downloaded here. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

We wish you enjoyable reading.
