SAC Customer Day 2020
The annual SAC Customer Day was held on 30 November 2020. This year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the event was held virtually. It was attended by over 200 participants including SAC accredited conformity assessment bodies (CABs) and partners. At the event, Mr Renny Yeo, Chairman of SAC launched the extension of SAC’s medical testing programme under ISO 15189 to include Point-of-care testing (POCT) based on ISO 22870 Point-of-care-testing (POCT) – Requirements for quality and competence.
The theme for this year’s event was “Role of Accreditation in the COVID-19 Climate”. A panel discussion on Opportunities for Conformity Assessment Bodies (CABs) in the new normal was held with distinguished speakers from the Singapore Food Agency (Dr Tan Lee Kim) and Cyber Security Agency of Singapore (Mr Lim Soon Chia), accredited laboratories An Security (Mr Daryl Koh) and Ugene Laboratory (Ms Eunice Ng), as well as the Testing, Inspection and Certification Interest Group (Mr Sze Thiam Siong). They shared on challenges and opportunities to the food, cybersecurity and TIC sectors during this unprecedented COVID-19 Pandemic.
The event recognised 53 newly accredited CABs in the various schemes. Our heartiest congratulations to the achievements of these CABs!
