The SQAM services refer to standardization, quality insurance and conformity assessment, accreditation and metrology. The main instruments that ensure the free circulation of merchandise on the big European market are the European directives, harmonized standards, accreditation, conformity certification by a third part (of the management system, of products and services), testing and metrology. The rendition or setting up of these instruments do not signify that the economic agents are immediately capable to use them in an optimal way. It is necessary to build a national infrastructure, alligned with the European and international practices, that can carry out SQAM services for the economic agents so that they can put into practice these instruments, vital for efficiency and competitivity. The paper referrs to the national system for SQAM services and the necessity of its development, to the strong points and their opportunities as well as the advantages given to the Romanian companies with the aim to fructify their competitive potential.
