DAkkS

The German Accreditation Body (DAkkS) is, among others, the successor organization of the German Calibration Service (DKD). A European regulation required the EC member states to establish a single national accreditation body and thus various German predecessor organizations merged to form the DAkkS in 2010. Besides the DKD, these were the German Accreditation Body Chemistry (DACH), the German Accreditation System for Testing (DAP) and the German Association for Accreditation (TGA), to which also the German Accreditation Body Technology (DATech) belonged.
