Accreditation, Metrology, Standardization. Conformity Assessment, and market Surveillance have pivoted roles to develop the quality infrastructure of a country. I am very glad that all the above components exist in our country and they are playing vital roles in implementing 17 SDGs with 169 associated targets in country and all over the world. The United Nations (UN) ambitious strategy to end proved by 2030. We are very careful making success with UN like earlier MDGs achievement.
