The Government of the HKSAR established the Hong Kong Council for Testing and Certification (HKCTC) in 2009 to advise it on the overall development strategy of the testing and certification industry. HKCTC comprises members from the industry, business sector and professional organisations as well as the relevant public bodies and Government departments. All members are appointed by the Chief Executive. The Innovation and Technology Commission provides secretariat and executive support to HKCTC. Having a robust accreditation system is also one of Hong Kong's key advantages in developing the testing and certification industry. Hong Kong Accreditation Service (HKAS) improves the standard of local conformity assessment services and supports the development of the industry by providing a wide range of accreditation services through three accreditation schemes, namely, the Hong Kong Laboratory Accreditation Scheme (HOKLAS); the Hong Kong Certification Body Accreditation Scheme (HKCAS); and the Hong Kong Inspection Body Accreditation Scheme (HKIAS).
