India ranked among top five accreditation systems in the world: Report
In an encouraging news, India has been ranked among the top five nations in the global ranking for the best accreditation system, according to the recently released Global Quality Infrastructure Index (GQII) 2021. The GQII ranks 184 economies on the basis of their quality infrastructure (QI).
India's overall QI system ranking continues to be tenth. According to the index, India was ranked 21st in terms of metrology and ninth in standardisation.
"We are proud that India is rated among the top five accrediting systems in the world...We anticipate that India will pave the way for more collaborations aimed at creating resilient systems of high-quality infrastructure," the Quality Council of India (QCI) said in a tweet.
The report said geographically, the top 25 are mainly located in Europe, North America, and Asia-Pacific, with some exceptions, such as India (10th), Brazil (13th), Australia (14th), and Turkey (16th).
While QCI is the national body for accreditation, Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) is the main body for formulation of standards and the Council Of Scientific And Industrial Research - National Physical Laboratory (CSIR-NPL) for the metrology system.
"India's accreditation system is the youngest among the three QI pillars in India, and we have jumped to global fifth within a year in these rankings," said Jaxay Shah, Chairperson, QCI.
