I hereby would like to inform you that TIC Council has published a new report on the 'Value of the Testing, Inspection and Certification Sector.'
This study looks at the value of the testing, inspection, and certification (TIC) sector. It illustrates, using data, how the sector benefits a variety of stakeholders across a large number of sectors around the world. The report – carried out by international law firm Steptoe and London-based consultancy Europe Economics – emphasises that the TIC sector empowers consumers, drives confidence among businesses, and supports policymakers to address critical public policy challenges from cybersecurity to smart technology. Its conclusions were drawn from interviews with leading industry stakeholders and a forensic analysis of the data available, which allowed the authors to demonstrate the monetary value of various benefits of the sector.
In addition, TIC Council also organised a Virtual Panel on "Substantiating green claims in the age of greenwashing". Those of you who could not attend the webinar, we are happy to share with you the Powerpoint presentation from the speakers, the recording of the webinar and the selected highlights, which you can find attached to this email.
