National Voluntary Conformity Assessment Systems Evaluation (NVCASE)
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), through its Standards Services Division, offers a voluntary program to evaluate and recognize organizations which support conformity assessment activities.
The National Voluntary Conformity Assessment Systems Evaluation (NVCASE) Program includes activities related to laboratory testing, product certification, and quality system registration.
