WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, USA, November 16, 2017 / -- The controversial International Accreditation Forum (IAF) which recently came under scrutiny for its alleged anti-competitive business practices reported to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), is presently being investigated by an independent council for its close relations with Iran, which remains a top terror sponsor, according to the U.S. State Department. Iran's ties to IAF has been brought to the attention of federal authorities. Evidence of the collaboration has been documented and made public at

Daryl Guberman, a candidate for United States Senate (CT) recently published a video on Youtube revealing Iran as a sitting member and signatory of IAF, despite the regime's sponsorship of terrorism and its well known anti-American views. The video can be seen at

In the video, Guberman, CEO of Connecticut-based Guberman-PMC, LLC, addressed a recent article in a Jewish newspaper published on October 19, 2017 indicating Iran's desire to destroy Israel and the United States. Guberman, who is Jewish, cited the article by saying, "During the First Christian Media Summit in Jerusalem, Israeli Diaspora Affairs Minister Naftali Bennett warned that Iran is plotting to destroy Israel and the United States." Guberman's video is expected to grab the attention of major media outlets, and is already going viral within the quality community.

IAF-member Iran has a long history of threats against Jews and the United States. The 6th President of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, created a sense of outrage by describing Israel as a “disgraceful blot” that should be “wiped off the face of the earth.” Ahmadinejad then promised to make good on his threats by saying, "Anybody who recognizes Israel will burn in the fire of the Islamic nation's fury, while any Islamic leader who recognizes the Zionist regime means he is acknowledging the surrender and defeat of the Islamic world.”

In addition to its ties with questionable Iranian companies, evidence has surfaced of IAF's previous associations North Korea, another known enemy of the United States. Shamelessly, IAF's leadership invited North Korea to join its organization and become a sitting member and signatory. North Korea was a member of IAF from 2002 to 2008. See: Today, North Korea's supreme leader Kim Jong-un, continues to make threats of nuclear attacks against the United States.

North Korea's membership in IAF was suspended in 2008 for not paying its membership dues. Guberman believes North Korea would most likely still be a member otherwise. "It's extremely troubling to learn as a signatory and member of IAF, North Korea's regime, unfortunately, had six years to gain invaluable data on American quality standards, manufacturing processes and other technology.” Guberman added, “It's very possible the technical information given by IAF to North Korean manufacturers could be used in the production of missiles and other weaponry targeting the United States or its allies. Guberman's concerns are supported by IAF's own website which indicates its signatories over-see calibration and test results, inspection reports and certifications.

Donald LaBelle, Chairman of the American Board of Accredited Certifications (ABAC) is calling for IAF and its sister organization ANAB to be investigated by the Department of Justice. “Unlike the International Accreditation Forum (IAF), The American Board of Accredited Certifications (ABAC) refuses at all levels to accredit, support and improve the quality management systems of Iranian and North Korean manufacturers at the risk of such entities discretely supplying materials and/or manufacturing equipment used directly or indirectly in the production of nuclear missiles and other weapons of mass destruction that could be used against the United States or its allies in the Middle East and Southeast Asia, said LaBelle.

IAF is no stranger to controversy. In 2015, Randy Dougherty, an American citizen, and then Chairman of IAF while simultaneously serving as the Vice President of its sister organization ANAB (ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board) handed over leadership to Chinese national Xiao Jianhua, who is currently the sitting Chief Executive of the problematic organization.

Concerns of China's influence over American interests are deepening further within the quality community of the United States now that ANAB, being a signatory of IAF, which is now under the leadership of Chinese national Mr. Jianhua. See:

Guberman produced a video challenging the reasons behind IAF transferring its leadership to become a China-lead organization. See:
