||Taiwan currently follows the standards stipulated in the ISO/IEC 17025 General Requirements for the Competence of Testing Laboratories for the quality assessment of construction materials. By commissioning TAF accreditation laboratories, the level of quality control and technical competency of laboratories can be ensured. However, accreditation laboratories can only assess the properties of submitted test samples. The advantage is that contracting parties can freely select a suitable TAF accreditation laboratory. The disadvantage is that the reports provided by these accreditation laboratories are only applicable to the specimens submitted by the contracting party, and test results lack representativeness. Moreover, the authenticity of the samples provided by the contracting party is not accounted for, and therefore the quality of construction materials during and after construction cannot be assessed. Only by adopting the accreditation system of ISO/IEC 17020 inspection bodies to establish relevant accreditation items, and commissioning these inspection bodies to conduct inspections before, during, and after construction activities can technical competency and construction quality be effectively improved. Consequently, the inspection results can be used to verify the pre-construction design effectiveness of the owner or the licensed design professional, the mid-construction quality control mechanism of contractors, and the post-construction quality assurance mechanism of related construction units. The purpose of the present study was to discuss the development conditions and trends of the TAF inspection bodies in Taiwan. In addition, the effectiveness of these inspection bodies on post-installed adhesive anchors in concrete was investigated. To supply references for ISO/IEC 17025 testing Laboratories intended to upgrade to ISO/IEC 17020 inspection bodies.|
