    DANAK devises a message when the need to announce consensus, attitudes and practical information concerning accreditation arises.

    It can be about the process of accreditation in a new area, transitional schemes for introducing a new DANAK document or announcements about interpretations of an already existing DANAK document until a revision of one of the accreditation regulations or an international document has been issued.

    In the laboratory area, messages are issued as AML, in the certification area (incl. EMAS and GHG) as AMC and in the inspection area as AMI. General messages are issued as AMF.
