Natalia Larrimer is responsible for developing and advancing accreditation programs with the ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board (ANAB). Her primary responsibility is working with industry and client groups, international organizations and the US government to develop sector-specific conformity assessment and accreditation programs and to promote the use of the international IAF-ILAC system and independent third-party accreditation programs.
Prior to joining ANAB in August 2014, she spent more than 10 years working with Standards Council of Canada, the Canadian multi-disciplinary accreditation body, where she started in the national and international standard development group. She then moved to accreditation services, where she managed accounts of global certification organizations within the voluntary and Canadian and US regulatory frameworks.
Her portfolio includes work at the national level with standards-developing committees such as the US Technical Advisory Group to ISO Technical Committee 176 for ISO 9001 and the US TAG to ISO Technical Committee 207 for ISO 14001. She also delivers educational sessions on sector-specific programs, accreditation, and international accreditation frameworks. In addition, she has been involved in international organizations such as the International Accreditation Forum, International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation, and InterAmerican Accreditation Cooperation.
