Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
SMIIC has positioned itself, by nature, as a common platform to make possible for the active participation of SMIIC Member States for the cooperation in the domain of standardization, metrology and accreditation. It is expected that OIC Member States shall leverage the SMIIC as a forum for discussion and exchange of views and experiences on issues of common interest. It could form part of an array of regional initiatives countries can leverage in their efforts to upgrade quality infrastructure, including through international harmonization and mutual recognition of conformity assessments. SMIIC is the platform that can help the capacity building of the OIC Member States, especially the LDCs, which have no quality infrastructure in their respective countries.

It shall establish certification and accreditation schemes for the purpose of expediting exchange of materials, manufactured goods and products among Member States beginning with mutual recognition of certificates.
