Since its establishment in 2008, JANAAC has been carrying out its mandate of facilitating trade between Jamaica and its trading partners by enabling Jamaica’s Conformity Assessment System to meet international standards and the World Trade Organization’s (WTO’s) Agreement on Technical Barriers to Trade.
The Mission of the Jamaica National Agency for Accreditation is to support the effective development of the Jamaican economy by providing Conformity Assessment Bodies with internationally recognized accreditation services that will:
- Encourage Jamaican entities to produce and trade goods and services of consistently good quality.
- Allow Jamaican regulators to control the quality of goods and services traded in Jamaica’s domestic market, through the implementation of conformity assessment procedures which are in line with the WTO’s Technical Barriers to Trade Agreement.
JANAAC is proud of its role in fostering global confidence in Jamaica’s products and services. We hope you will find our website informative and resourceful as we work together to build our country’s future.
